Ever since Pantiacolla was started, we have intended to be doing responsible tourism. However, people have different understandings about what "responsible" means. Since Pantiacolla was set up from a biologist´s point of view, it´s criteria are similar to the "Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria" (see GLOBAL CRITERIA FOR SUSTAINABLE TOURISM) set up by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council in 2006. Still, there are always points that can be improved, and therefore we are grateful for Rainforest Alliance´s help to get our entire operation fit the international standards for responsible tourism. Please, also check out PANTIACOLLA'S RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LOW IMPACT, to see where you, as our guest, can help as well.
