Responsible tourism: Colombia tailor made tour, in depth


Where possible we use local transport. A good example is in Medellin where the Transformation City tour uses the metro system. The Metro in Medellin avoids an annual emission of 196 tonnes of contaminants into the atmosphere a year. It is also estimated that it saves 20 million gallons of diesel. A percentage of the fares is used to maintain the city's trees and green areas.

The whale watching boat trips strictly follow international guidelines for example maintaining a recommended distance between the whales and the boat. Boat captains are fully trained and very experienced. Outings are always accompanied by a local guide who specialises in whale watching. Books and other educational material are available in the lodge. Local children are encouraged to learn about their environment through surfing. Boards and lessons are provided to them for free as part of several social projects aimed at protecting the environment by first educating the local people to understand and value it.


In Medellin during the social transformation tour passengers learn about how the city has turned itself around since the days when it was the centre of the drug cartel operations under Pablo Escobar. Clients visit areas such as El Poblado and Sabaneta, once no go areas that have been transformed through successful social projects and initiatives. When pax visit these areas not only do they come away with a deeper understanding of the history and culture but the local communities benefit from the sale of handicrafts, and food and drinks that are typical of the region.

El Cantil ecolodge is run by local people and all the guides are local to the region. They run a program to donate supplies to local schools. They also train and educate local young people through surfing. It gives them a focus and motivates them to make achievements in sport rather than get side tracked into drugs and crime.
