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.

Environment
On Day 5, you will meet a Mayan village in the Cayo District. They will explain how they have been able to stop deforestation in the area in order to conserve the forest. Visiting villages that are creating fantastic examples of environmental and community conservation are important, not only to support such projects, but creates an example of how protecting forest can bring income from tourism.

On Day 6, you will visit a butterfly farm to learn of the diverse wildlife in the region and provide income to conservation projects in the area. Tourism can be damaging to the environment, but taking part in excursions that ensure tourism protects an environment is a way of travelling responsibly. Often, tourism is the only way an environment is protected through income to the local economy.

On day 2 you will be visiting an organic plantation to understand the benefits of organic production in the area for the local people and environment.
We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable and filtered water bottles. Our partnership with Water-To-Go provides a discount on filtered water bottles to our clients. We do not provide water from plastic bottles to our clients in country but always ensure there is regular access to drinking water on our tours.

By keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems we visit.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

On Day 2 we will learn of Mayan cultures and traditions by visiting a village. You will share stories with them as they cook you hand grind corn and cook tortillas over an open fire. The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains – the families financially benefit from our visit and we more than benefit from them in terms of the wonderful welcome and experience they give us.

Wherever possible we stay in locally owned accommodation, eat in locally owned establishments and purchase supplies from the local markets.

You will also visit Mennonite community of Barton Creek on Day 6, to meet with them and be taken on a boat tour of an underground cave system. Providing income to the community through tourism ensures the protection of their culture and environment.

On each Group tour we use local ground handlers. This means that all operational costs go directly into the local economy and help improve employment opportunities in remote regions. Such support can also be seen in our incorporation of homestays, locally owned hotels, family run restaurants and the services of local guides and drivers into our itineraries, which ensures that the money you spend with us goes directly into the local economy and local community.
