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
We ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment in which you travel, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact to the environment whilst travelling. Especially within the natural landscapes visited across this tour, we rely on our guides’ expert local knowledge to traverse these areas with as little impact as possible.

This tour also supports a number of significant natural areas such as the Valle de Viñales and the Cueva de los Peces. The monetary support that visitors provide allows these locations to go on with continued protection, ensuring the safeguarding of sizeable natural areas and important natural features. Similarly, this tour supports Las Terrazas – not only a UNESCO biosphere reserve, but Cuba’s most successful eco-tourism centre.

Finally, to you, our traveller: we ask you to be vigilant about disposing of your waste and recycle where possible. During your trip you will be asked if you have any waste to dispose of when it is a suitable time in the itinerary. This ensures we make it as easy as possible for our travellers to be eco-friendly whilst traveling. We strongly advise all travellers to bring a reusable water bottle - this is an easy way to save plastic waste and is detailed in our ‘What to Bring’ trip notes for all trips to all destinations. Your guide will remind you where and when you can fill up your re-usable water bottle. Additionally, we respectfully ask that you are environmentally conscious wherever possible in all aspects of your travels with us, i.e. using air-conditioning and electricity sparingly when possible. This is something we believe in and practice as a company, and something we try to pass on to our travellers.

The Impacts of this Trip

As regular travellers, one thing that never ceases to amaze and inspire us is the kindness and generosity of local people, often people who have very little to their name. We firmly believe that they are who make these places special and that they should benefit from our visit. For that reason, as a priority we use local guides and drivers offered fair working conditions and pay, locally-sourced supplies, and visit local accommodations, businesses and eateries in order to have the maximum and most wide-reaching benefit to the communities we visit.

As Cuba’s second largest industry, tourism on the whole is vital in supporting all communities across the entire country. This itinerary in particular has many opportunities for travellers to explore local shops, bars, and businesses in their free time, and support them by means of direct custom.

There are a number of interactive activities which work hand-in-hand with local businesses to further this – for example the pottery class in Trinidad, which gives our travellers the opportunity to buy local artisan handicrafts, and offers the business custom through the class itself. Another fantastic example of this is the visit to a local tobacco farmer’s family home and farm. Not only are these opportunities excellent cultural experiences for our travellers – they allow local individuals to showcase their traditions and livelihoods, and earn income as they do so. This is just one of many hugely positive experiences that results from responsible tourism.
