Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

We have been using solar in varying degrees for many years and are now run our 5 cottages all on solar power. We also compost and try to deal with our refuse in a responsible manner

We are blessed to have the large leatherback turtles laying their eggs on the beaches by us so we do try to encourage our guests to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and, at the same time, to support the local initiative in helping these marvellous entities to survive.

Our bus system is quite affordable and we generally advise our guests to take advantage of it when possible. When they do use the system they are enchanted with the way they quickly become involved with the local community. You learn everything that is going on as the passengers thoroughly discuss each thing that happened in the village !

The Impacts of this Trip

Since we are in a rural area we have always been aware of how important it is to include the neighborhood in whatever endeavor you set forth on.Since we were one of the first tourist businesses in the area we have been a part of building it up, encouraging the young people to get their guiding course etc. and then sending our guests to them. We were part of the first Tourist Association in the area which has now amalgamated with the local businesses to promote things like Carnival shows , help for the aged etc. The local restaurants are all written up in our information packages and we also give them good verbal reports as well as enjoying their cuisine ourselves.

It has always been important that the community grew along with tourism and this seems to be happening in our little area. Some of our staff have been with us for almost 20 years now and our newest staff member just 10 months. We have five main people, which sounds like a very small group, and then our more casual folk. This makes up our part time management, cleaning staff, groundskeeper, early evening night staff. Others we rely on for tours, painting etc.
