About Camino Travel Commitments
Visiting a new country is one of the best ways to open one’s mind !!! We believe in sustainability and we work continuously to put into practice the basic principles necessary for a better way of doing tourism that impacts the environment less and the visitor’s experience more.
WE STAND FOR:
One of Camino Travel commitments is sustainability. We know that the concept of sustainability involves a great amount of responsibility and hard work, aside from the business related issues. Being sustainable means that we care to maintain a system of both local and global resources. We intend to do this by conserving and preserving the ecological and cultural integrity, promoting social and economic equity, understanding differences, promoting community involvement, and placing greater emphasis on education. We believe that if something is not sustainable it will eventually disappear. Therefore our daily goal is to take actions against practices that are not sustainable. one of most important Camino Travel commitments is to encourage sustainable business in tourism; not only by reducing the impact on the environment; but also with consideration to the social, cultural, and economic dimensions of sustainability.
