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.
PlanetThe Yucatan bike tour already minimizes the impact on the environment by using bicycles to start with.
All the entrance fees to the parks and National parks are included in our price, our local guide will take you to the most magical places. We are actively working to ensure the preservation of our destination and culture for future generations. This equates to more attractive environments and better products. We are currently working with different NGO´s such as the Mexican Association of Adventure Travel and Ecotourism, World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, and many more in unique training programs on ecotourism, development of best practices, code of ethics and many important actions to achieve or get closer to a sustainable tourism practice.
Like other trips, we promote environmental awareness through our guides and we inform both locals and of course tourists about the adoption of good environmental practices. An example is a recent law in Quintana Roo that forbids the use of single-use plastic water bottles. Considering this issue, our company is providing water plastic bottles that can be used many times, this way we lower the consumption of the number of single-use plastic bottles.
PeopleOur promise to support the local community is to hire as many local guides and drivers for all the tours that we are offering, including the Yucatan bike tour.
People are able to explore and discover unique Maya villages and help the local communities by eating in local restaurants, using local hotels and using also local guides who explain about their life, culture, and village.
In case of the Yucatan bike tour, we hire local people as much as we can. There are multiple benefits to this. The first one being that the local people understand the value of conserving the environment and nature in Mexico. The benefit is that it obviously is positive for the environment but also since this brings great job opportunities for them. We want to make sure that the local, Mexican people are able to make a decent living working for us.
A further promise is to contribute to social projects that benefit the local community. An example of this is to provide job opportunities for the local, Mexican people. This trip has helped built bridges with some local communities who then have developed productive projects that have helped them to achieve a better quality of life.
