Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Much of this trip is spent exploring Mexico's rich natural environment. Visiting protected areas means we are playing a vital part of the conservation efforts that go in these places, both by learning and being able to promote awareness, and also through our entrance fees and donations. We visit Bahia Concepcion which is a designated marine protected area for whales, dolphins and whale sharks. Our boat operators aim to minimise their impact on the environment by ways of conserving energy, reducing fuel consumption and keeping a safe distance from the marine life.

The Resilience project aims to reduce the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and human communities in Mexico. San Pedro Martir National Park is just one of the protected areas in this project and is an important area for bird conservation.

Our travelers are fully briefed on how to treat these environments with respect, making sure that we stick to any designated trails to avoid damaging rare flora and fauna.

We always keep the environment at the forefront of our minds and take all litter with us, disposing of it responsibly in big cities and towns. We ask our travelers to also refrain from leaving cigarette butts.

Bringing a reusable water bottle is a great idea and if purchasing any snacks, it is best to avoid excess packaging. We visit many fragile ecosystems on our tour, from the Bahia Concepcion, to Isla Coronado to spot wildlife where it should be seen, in the wild.

Last but not least, we use local guides for this tour, which means we are keeping carbon emissions down.

People

Keeping money in local economies, supporting tribal communities and helping to keep their traditions alive is also extremely important. We spend time with the Raramuri people, taking the time to learn about their culture, traditions and way of life, and we only visit communities where we are welcomed to ensure that our presence is beneficial and not voyeuristic. We like to see small communities benefiting from tourism income and to ensure that our money doesn't just go to large hotel chains.

Using local guides also ensures money stays within local economies and means we will be treated to such valuable, in-depth and honest knowledge which you perhaps wouldnít get from a western guide.

Most people like to take photos on their travels, and itís sometimes easy to forget that the photogenic person in front of you may not want their picture taken. We always ask if itís okay, and respect their wishes if they say no.
