this is the opposite of mass tourism
Sumak Travel has been launched! A sustainable, community-based tourism agency to Latin America. They are starting with trips to Chile and soon will be adding trips to Argentina, Brazil and Bolivia.
Sumak Travel work directly with local, community-based tour operators offering a unique experience for all travelers. ST trips are a combination of home-stay within rural local communities (farmers, indigenous peoples, fishermen, etc) and visits to Latin American cities and special interest places. A cost-efficient structure allows ST to offer affordable trips and to maximise the amount of money going straight to the local communities. It is a complementary source of income that they use to improve their living standards and to preserve their culture and the environment.
In one sentence: this is the opposite of mass tourism. So, why not join the sustainable tourism wave!
