SUSTAINABILITY

Since 1999, Alltournative has developed eco-tourist projects that have benefited the economic, social and cultural development of various Maya communities. Alltournative is the pioneer in ecotourism practices in the State of Quintana Roo, Mexico through their tours and excursions in the Riviera Maya.

The tourist-based economic sustainable development offered by Alltournative is of vital importance to the Maya Communities as an alternate occupation to adverse conditions of the land which allows only for poor subsistence agriculture.

In each ecotourism project and through its tours in Riviera Maya and Yucatan, Alltournative has achieved significant economic sustainable development for the inhabitants, established programs for cultural and ecologic preservation as well as promoted the natural and cultural treasures of Mexico, as cenotes and archaeological sites, for example.
