Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Small group tours to Brazil, Rio to Iguazu

Environment

Bonito is fast becoming a part of the Brazilian ecotourism boom. The beautiful area surrounding the small town of Bonito is attracting more visitors each year, but the Brazilian government is trying to limit any damage to the natural environment. They do this by granting a limited number of local travel agencies access to the area’s attractions. We use one of these agencies, who are proud to be working alongside the authorities in promoting sustainable tourism in the area.

In 1998 the Pantanal Nature Park was created to protect the region and ensure all development is sustainable. Whilst in the Pantanal we chose to stay at the Pousada Aguapé because of its sensitive approach to tourism. The lodge is a farm that has been run by the same family for some 150 years and since 1989 it has diversified its activities, continuing with cattle but starting to work in eco-tourism.

The Pousada Aguapé has also been working with the Blue Macaw project since 2000. The project’s aim is to preserve the environment to ensure the survival of Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus in its natural habitat. On top of work with wildlife, Aguapé is also involved with the local authority of Aquidauana to improve local schooling and increase classroom attendance.

One of the major attractions of the tour is the visit to the Iguazú Falls. The falls lie in both Brazil and Argentina. UNESCO, in association with the WWF, works to coordinate both the Brazilian and Argentine sides of the National Park, and make sure that all the money raised from the thousands of visitors each year in entrance fees is properly distributed to the protection and development of the area.

Community

On this tour we work with small privately owned ground agents who live in the area, have established RT policies in place, and employ local guides and staff. A number of journeys on this tour use public transport, the hotels are small, individual properties often run by the owners and their families, we eat in local restaurants serving locally grown produce – our style of travel ensures that as many local people as possible benefit by our being there. This tour runs with a maximum of 16 people which helps to minimise the impact on delicate environments.
