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
Protecting the environment is at the very core of responsible travel. Each of our passengers receives a refillable / reusable souvenir water bottle at the start of the trip. We encourage everyone on the trip to refill their bottles with purified water each day from hotels and restaurants that we visit along the way. We also have a policy of reducing waste and especially plastic trash on our trips. We discourage single-use plastics such as straws, plastic bags, and of course plastic single-use water bottles. Unfortunately in Latin America, like most places in the world these days, there is an over-reliance on plastic. We will see this first hand on our trips and leading by example is one of the best ways to affect change. We also propose fun solutions such as making an Eco Brick: Taking a used plastic water bottle and filling it with bits of trash (such as candy wrappers or empty chips bags), packing it tightly, and turning in this bottle to the trip leader. These bottles are then used as insulation in local construction projects.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Understanding and supporting the communities in which we visit is fundamental to the principles of responsible travel. When choosing where to eat, where to sleep, or which tours to take, we are always keeping the community and people in mind. We frequent locally owned and operated establishments and always choose comfortable, family run hotels and guest houses whenever possible. This trip will take you out to visit small taquerias (taco stands), and into local markets where the best food vendors where you'll rub shoulders on a plastic stool next to everyday people looking for some great home-cooked, delicious, freshly prepared food. When shopping for souvenirs, we'll go directly to the artisans who create these local treasures. Supporting individuals and small, family-run businesses at every turn provides great economic benefit to communities, and helps ensure the economic benefit of tourism is felt directly in the places we visit, by those wonderful people who welcome us to their country.
