Responsible tourism: Mexico luxury family holiday

Environment

Mexico is the fifth largest country in the Americas and is home to one of the most diverse weather systems in the world. Because of this it has a has a highly varied environment from tropical beaches to rainforest, mountains and deserts. We support these unique regions by taking travellers into its parks, reserves and other protected zones which ensure the flora, fauna and environment are safeguarded.

- When guests visit the ruins of Uxmal, Kabah and Chichen Itza they go with expert local guides who share the history and stories to the sites and educate and inform them on how they can help support the preservation of these ruins for future generations. They are also advised on how to ensure their visit has as little impact as possible on the sites, such as not touching any monuments and being careful throughout the ruins.

-When visiting the Sian Kaan biosphere reserve, guests are accompanied by an expert local guide who informs them about the delicate flora and fauna and ensure that the wildlife and reefs are not touched or disturbed by the visitors. Guests are also educated on how the reef and wildlife is preserved and how they can support locals to ensure it's continued to be looked after for future generations.

- We use lodges that employ ethical and responsible practices, with a small footprint and an emphasis on educating guests about the surrounding environment. This improves awareness and individual responsibility. Our lodges and hotels are also environmentally sound, relying on renewable energy where possible and local produce and resources. At Maroma Resort & Spa in Playa del Carmen the resort is built in a jungle reserve and contributes to the preservation of the flora and fauna in the reserve as well as educating guests about how they can support the preservation of the jungle. Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen is set on a coastal ecosystem and they run trips to show guests the local flora and fauna and tours of the mangroves. Guests learn how they can help support the ongoing preservation of the local flora and fauna in the region.

- For each of our Latin America trips sold, we donate money to a wildlife project in Costa Rica. Our environmental charity in Costa Rica is Kids Saving the Rainforest (kidssavingtherainforest.org), which rescues and rehabilitates injured and orphaned animals.

Community

- Our guides are locals, which helps us support and sustain the local economy through tourism in a long-term way. It also gives our clients a more authentic experience of a destination and a chance to meet local people, aiding their knowledge of the place and culture. This understanding is key for people to get the most out of a trip and to firm up relationships between locals and tourists.

-When guests visit Mexico City, San Miguel de Allende, Merida and the Playa del Carmen we arrange for them to visit local, often family-run restaurants to experience the local cuisine, immerse in the culture and support the local economy. We also encourage visits to stores that support local artisans.

- The hotels and lodges we use are staffed by locals, which follows on from our own policy of only using local guides. This serves to empower the community and create long-term, stable and well-paid jobs. Some of the hotels also offer experiences that educate guests about the local culture, such as Casa de Sierra Nevada in San Miguel del Allende where guests can take part in local cooking classes. The hotel also runs artisan workshops with locals where guests can learn how to paint, create sculpture, about the history of art in the city, make jewellery or study the language.

- For each of our Latin America trips sold, we donate money to a school charity based in Ecuador. Our school charity in Ecuador is the Condor Trust (condortrust.org), which helps encourage low-income families to send their children to school. The funds provide uniforms, school materials and books for the children.
