We launched our blog four years ago, to promote ethical tourism in general and local responsible tourism projects in particular. We want to share the very first blog post with you: https://goo.gl/PdsfF9 Back then, we strongly believed community-based tourism (CBT) could be used as a force for good. Today, after having created, operated and promoted hundreds of tours including CBT, all over Latin America, we are sure CBT is a powerful tool for sustainable development. And a lot of our happy travellers agree with us too! 😄 #oldpost #throwback
