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.

On this particular tour, travelers will enjoy the variety of highlights that Uruguay has to offer: the sandy coast, geological rock formations, serene estancias, the bustling metropolis of Montevideo, and nostalgic Colonia. We make every effort to maintain sustainable travel practices no matter which attraction is being visited. We operate under Leave no Trace principles, which includes minimizing environmental impact in all places visited.

For instance, the lodging chosen for this holiday is selected based on particular establishments’ commitment to environmental conservation. Pueblo Barrancas Eco Lodge provides functional accommodations that allow travelers to appreciate their surroundings while still existing in accord with nature. The simple cabanas are constructed on stilts in order to avoid impact on the Uruguayan coastal system. Wood and straw are the building materials used, and all construction was done manually making heavy machinery unnecessary. The lodge’s sense of responsibility is even reflected in the natural treatment that all waste undergoes.

The Impacts of this Trip

We have designed our holidays to utilize existing infrastructure whenever possible in order to support the people of the regions in which we operate. Locally owned transportation companies typically provide all the transfers provided in our itineraries. However, we do occasionally use public transport when it is logistically sound or adds to the sense of adventure! Employing these local services generates funds that are poured directly into local communities.

To continually support the communities and sustain the environments in our trip destinations, we initiated a grant program. Through our financial assistance, several different initiatives have been made possible. A few of these projects include reforestation and home restoration in the Andes, sponsoring a Christmas fiesta at an orphanage in Costa Rica, giving a Guatemalan school needed building materials, supplying plumbing and irrigation at a historic hacienda in Bolivia with a proper well system, and providing first-aid and hospitality training for one of our Amazon lodges in Ecuador. By traveling as with us, you help support these initiatives directly!
