Responsible tourism: Highlights of Mexico vacation

Environment

This short 8 day adventure provides a wonderful introduction to some of the highlights of Mexico. Mexico is a country rich in culture, natural wonders, ancient sites and lush beaches. As a popular tourist destination, it is of the utmost importance that everyone does their part to ensure the country is kept clean, with minimal litter and waste left behind, especially on the beaches. We adhere to a strict responsible travel policy which is reiterated at the pre departure meeting by the tour leader, so that you, our customers, are aware of our expectations when you travel with us. This includes actions you can do in the hotel, such as limiting water consumption by taking shorter showers, switching off all electricity and air conditioning and requesting that towels and bedding are not changed unnecessarily.

When relaxing on the beaches on Mexico, we ask that you ensure all litter is taken with you or disposed of correctly and nothing is left behind that may end up in the ocean. When exploring the area and swimming, avoid disrupting marine animals or coral, and do not remove natural materials from their habitat as souvenirs. We also would discourage you from purchasing any souvenirs that may contain shell or other natural materials.

This tour visits an incredible 6 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These incredible and preserved sites highlight the importance of keeping history alive for generations to come. Entrance is included in the tour cost for Teotihuacan, Monte Alban and Chichen Itza. The money we pay for tickets to these sites goes directly back into the restoration of the buildings and the preservation of them and the surrounding area for years to come. When visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites, we ask that you remain respectful and do not climb or walk over areas that are prohibited.

Mexico has a reputation for its wonderful food, and this tour offers ample opportunity to taste some of the countries finest dishes. Our tour leaders are incredibly knowledgeable on the best local restaurants and markets for you to try. We would encourage you to always eat local produce, making use of the wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables that the country are fortunate enough to grow. Eating locally produced food from markets is the most environmentally friendly way of eating as you can be assured that very little would be imported from overseas like it would in many international chain restaurants.

Community

Mexico has a rich culture and we encourage you to embrace this with open arms. We would recommend to learn a few words of Spanish in order to communicate with local people in shops or markets. Not only does this make for some wonderful memories but shows that you respect their language and culture and are willing to educate yourself as you travel.

Throughout this tour we stay in unique, smaller accommodations that are locally owned where possible. We believe our accommodation choices should directly benefit the local economy while providing a comfortable and convenient stay for travelers. For example in Puebla we stay in Hotel La Alhondiga, a 17th century colonial building which is one of the oldest in the city. This quaint building is a wonderful example of colonial architecture and how important it is to preserve these buildings.

This tour includes all breakfasts and no lunch or dinners. While this also keeps the overall tour cost down, we strongly believe a vacation where you can choose your meals and where to eat is the best option for both traveler and community. With so many wonderful restaurants and local markets, our tour leaders will advise you on the best and most authentic places to eat and where to spend your money, ensuring you are supporting local establishments and not international chains.

This tour includes one internal flight between Oaxaca and Merida. By adding in a flight between these destinations we cut out many long travel days and in turn give you more time to spend in these wonderful towns and their communities. In other areas we use a private transport company to get from A to B. This not only provides work opportunities for local people who work in the business but private transfers also allow for us to get off the beaten track and visit areas/local establishments that are off the main roads.
