OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL
Journey Mexico is committed to low impact, environmentally, and socially sensitive travel that prioritizes community participation. Our experience has shown that supporting local businesses that protect pristine natural areas helps to ensure their sustainable future. We have never been more aware of the need for conscious living and this extends to all aspects of our lives.
Our Sustainability Committee, which works to develop policies and objectives that prioritize sustainable business ventures, implements methods that allow us to measure and assess our sustainability performance, to promote the awareness of eco-practices in all areas of operations, and to create collaborative partnerships that foster the exchange of knowledge and best practices.
We purposefully work with local communities and non-profit organizations whose missions are based in conservation and sustainable development, making good on the promise of ecotourism as a catalyst for sustainable development. We invite you to learn more about our endeavors to protect Mexico´s pristine coasts, mountains, canyons, and jungles. #JourneyGivesBack
