Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Where possible we choose to travel by land rather than air. By minimizing the use of flights on our trips, we are making journeys more stimulating and more sustainable for travellers. This trip through Mexico does not include any flights, providing all transport by road. We ensure our vehicles are fuel-efficient and well maintained with regular servicing. We use vehicles that are an appropriate size to suit the group size. For example, we wouldn’t use a 16-seater van if we only had five people travelling with us. We optimize our driving routes to reduce travel time and our carbon footprint, and we turn the engine off when travellers are visiting a site and not in the vehicle.


We provide training to trip leaders on water consumption best practices and how to encourage their travellers to follow these principles too. We continue to work with local suppliers on water management initiatives. For example, encouraging hotel owners to provide water refill stations, and in-room signage requesting short showers, repeated towel use and turning taps off. While tap water may not be safe to drink in Mexico, we still encourages travellers to bring their own reusable water bottles. Our leaders will suggest and facilitate the purchase of larger containers of water for the group so that travellers can refill their reusable water bottles from this source. This reduces the number of single-use plastic water bottles disposed of by our travellers.

People

Our trips maximize the opportunity for travellers to engage meaningfully with local culture and communities. Many experiences on our trips also support traditional cultural practices – whether artisanal, culinary or otherwise. In turn, this helps to sustain and preserve these traditional practices so that future generations may continue to learn, enjoy and benefit from them. This Mexican trip includes visits to several family-owned businesses that produce historical crafts using traditional methods. These include beeswax candle-making, Zapotec weaving and obsidian stonework.


Our leaders provide travellers with a Spanish language sheet when they join this Mexican trip. Leaders conduct a quick lesson to help travellers become more confident with commonly used words and phrases. Travellers can then be polite and friendly in their interactions with locals throughout Mexico, using greetings, please and thank you to show their respect.
