How do we select our eco vacations?
We strive to offer real eco vacations, with hotels and tours that support the environment, conform to sustainability guidelines and work with the local natural resources.
Our eco vacations follow the standards of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GTSC) which places a strong emphasis on demonstrating sustainable management practices, reducing pollution, conserving biodiversity and ecosystems, and respecting local natural heritage.
