SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

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.

We actively work with local communities and non-profit organizations with missions based in conservation and sustainable development to make good on the promise of ecotourism as a catalyst for sustainable development; we invite you to learn more about our efforts to protect the pristine coasts, mountains, canyons, and jungles of Mexico.

CONSERVATION GROUPS WE SUPPORT

Journey Mexico is an active member of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council and sits on the Board of Advisors of the Oceanic Society, where it is our mission to conserve marine wildlife and habitats by deepening the connections between people and nature.

We are also an active member of the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Illegal Wildlife Trade Working Group. This pioneering group helps to combat illegal wildlife trade and encourages responsible wildlife-based tourism by raising awareness among customers, staff, and professional trade networks.

We also support Dr Wallace J Nichols as one of his “Blue Angels” and invite you to do the same at www.wallacejnichols.org. J’s innovative approach to ocean conservation has been covered in Time magazine, Outside Magazine, National Geographic, and more.
