Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.


This holiday is based at Blue Horizons Garden Resort, a hotel that is proud to be ‘green’. They are Green Globe certified and therefore committed to operating the resort observing and implementing sound Environmental practices. Some practices include minimizing the use of energy, water and materials of scarce supply; educating and informing their staff and guests of their policies and practices; and the purchasing of local goods and services which have no adverse environmental effects. A few examples of their efforts to minimize environmental impact include a creation of a fully-organic composting heap; the introduction of water-saving toilets and solar water heating systems in all the rooms. In the wonderful gardens, they have chosen more drought-resistant flora so less water is used during dry season. They are also active conservationists and encourage the nesting of 21 species of tropical birds and 49 species of moths in their grounds, as well as supporting the development of an underwater marine park, where sea life can flourish.

However, as the holiday is tailor-made to exactly suit your requirements, we would be happy to recommend alternative accommodation with the assurance that any hotel recommended by us would have similar high responsible credentials.

Conservation in Grenada has made giant steps in recent years, healing the scars left by past hurricanes. Trails have been cleared, new shoots have sprouted and grown and Grenada’s natural world is as enticing as ever. The National parks and reserves protect natural assets and we are committed to working with them to making the island a top Caribbean choice for bird watching and hiking.


On this holiday, you will be met and looked after by our wonderful local representatives and all tours and walks are guided by local ecological guides. This brings income to local Grenadians, who are very aware that it is important to take care of their beautiful island's natural resources, as it is one of the main attractions for tourists and tourism is the main income on the island.

All the excursions included on this tour either focus on the natural environment or on interacting with the community. For instance the Gouyave Fish Friday is a community tourism project originally started with funding from US Aid after the devastation of Hurricane Ivan. Local vendors sell their wares and local musicians entertain the crowds of mostly local people, who happily interact with the tourists. At Belmont Estate, organic cocoa is grown and is then turned into the finest chocolate at the Grenada Chocolate Company. Fruit, vegetables and meat produced on the estate are used in the restaurant; they also support the local community and they have family day for workers and the community. The River Antoine rum distillery is water powered, and employs local people in the old traditional way of making rum. These are just a few of many examples, as all the excursions offered spread tourism income to local people and those most in need.
