Cano Cristales tour Colombia
Description of Cano Cristales tour Colombia
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetCaño Cristales is a natural wonder located in the Serrania de la Macarena National Natural Park in Colombia. The park and its surrounding areas are considered important for conservation efforts and sustainable tourism practices.
We work with a tour operator that prioritizes responsible and sustainable tourism practices and follows guidelines on waste management, conservation, and sustainable development.
We follow the park's rules and regulations:
1. Before entering the park, we make sure you know and understand the rules and regulations.
2. The park has limited the number of visitors to Caño Cristales to 200 per day to reduce the impact of tourism on the environment.
3. The park has implemented measures to protect the natural environment, such as banning the use of motorized boats in the river and enforcing strict waste management policies.
When in the park, we follow Leave No Trace principles. This includes packing out all trash, staying on designated trails, and respecting wildlife and their habitats.
PeopleAll the partners with whom we collaborate on our tours, or through our office and internet business, have their base in Colombia.
We almost entirely work with smaller local businesses or families with whom we want to establish a long-term relationship, without intermediaries. This gives our guests a unique insight into each destination and with us, they travel and think like the locals. Our primary concern with tourism in Colombia is to ensure that there is only a positive impact on local communities and culture.
For all our guests there is always pre-trip information available for each destination. Where possible, we like to ensure that upon arrival they feel comfortable and confident ahead of their Colombian experience. Greeted by the local guide at the airport, who is our representative, they will have explained to them all the details of the tour and be provided with additional local information. For this, our guests are generally very appreciative.
We support local businesses purchasing souvenirs or dining out at locally-owned businesses that support the local economy avoiding purchasing items made from endangered species or materials that contribute to deforestation.
On this trip, you'll be interacting with local people who are passionate about preserving their environment and natural resources and may inspire you to take action in your own life and make more sustainable choices.
