SUSTAINABLE TOURISM POLICY
Thank you for reading our Sustainable Tourism Policy
Birdwatching Guatemala organizes tours focused on sustainability respecting the environment, local communities, and their traditions, trying as much as possible to use suppliers committed to sustainable practices while working with them to implement these, which leads us to improve the quality of the services offered.
All business activities are analyzed and considered to avoid, mitigate, compensate or reverse environmental impacts. The natural environment is essential and complementary to our products; therefore, it is indispensable for our daily survival.
Social and cultural responsibility:
The company analyzes and considers the social and cultural background of the sites and areas of influence in which it operates, resulting in the benefit of the local people. Furthermore, the cultural environment is the most charismatic part of our product. Therefore, contributing to its conservation is a mode to preserve our way of life.
We ensure that our operations generate proper revenues and profits for the communities and our providers receive a fair payment.
Birdwatching Guatemala cooperates with the different service providers such as hotels, restaurants, community projects, local leaders, and guides, based on the agreement for Best Practices in Sustainable Tourism, established by Rain forest Alliance in 2006.
