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.
PlanetDuring the Bird Watching Tour, you will be spotting various kinds of birds and maybe other animals. We want to assure you that everything is environmentally responsible.
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.
For example: one of the reserves you will be visiting, Reserva Toh (Puerto Morelos), is working on a conservation project. By visiting the area, you help them with their project (entrance is included in the total price). Next to that, we have contacts with several eco-hotels. The first hotel in Cancun, El Rey del Caribe, is a good example of an eco-hotel.
PeopleThe previously example is helping with a conservation project, which is environmentally. However, the project is run by locals. The Bird Watching Tour is logically more pointed at the observation of animals. However, there are also some archaeological sites that will be visited, to give a broader sense about the local culture. We make sure that our guides know how to minimalize any negative impacts to the local culture, issues like taking pictures, giving away money to children, etcetera.
One of the places that will be visited is Ek Balam. We specifically works with many Mayan communities establishing business relationships with fair deals where both groups achieve win-win situations, and the community of Ek Balam is one of them. This is a good combination between having an authentic, local experience, and simultaneously contributing to the local community as well.
Another archaeological site that will be visited is Chichen Itza. The entrance (included) goes to the state, but the other half goes to the INAH, to make sure that these important sites keep conservated well.
