That’s why we support rural and communitarian tourist experiences, where is the local population, organized in cooperatives or collectives, who welcomes the traveler and manages its stay.
Moreover, thanks to our responsible approach you will live a true travel experience, in contact with local people, its places, its traditions and its food while visiting amazing sites.
