GLOCALTRAVEL - Mexico Ecotourism
GloCaltravel offers sound tourism alternatives to mass package-holidays, with travel solutions that co-operate with the local communities throughout Mexico to improve their economy, and protect their local environments.
Ecotours range from daily activities and excursions to longer trips exploring different regions, and are all focused on nature watching and on the discovery of the amazing archaeology and culture of Mexico, with interaction activities with local communities.
Adventure activities often included in the tours are trekking, mountain-biking, rafting, kayaking, climbing, flying, diving and snorkeling. Other cultural activities are food and drink tasting, cooking and handcraft courses.
Glocaltravel mainly promotes destinations off the beaten tracks, focusing on areas offering peculiar eco-systems and bio-diversities, and historical and archaeological parks.
Accommodation and tour providers are carefully selected among those who show an approach to the tourist development based on sustainability & respect for the environment, practising ecology policies and creating an atmosphere where visitors can have an authentic travel experience.
The website provides detailed information about the featured destinations in Mexico, an overview about the history, culture and traditions of the country, and tips helping travelers to make the most of their trip, enjoying the local life, in a way that contributes directly to the local communities.
The lodging section lists indipendent hotels, B&Bs, camps, haciendas and ecolodges all over the country, avoiding hotel chains and mass tourist resorts. Accommodation can be searched by areas and type, and travellers will find a detailed description for each of the featured properties - with emphasis on their ecopolicies - and a rich photogallery, with some extra information about the surrounding areas.
