Communities & Culture
Many of our tours are made in remote areas of Colombia where our best allies are the communities that live there. That is why we believe that in order for our business and our country to advance, we must work together with the communities. we must work together with the communities. For this reason, we have undertaken several projects in conservation in different areas of the country as alternative and sustainable source of work in birding and wildlife. In addition, several of these communities, which have undertaken their own projects in which highlight the best of Colombian culture, are part of some of our tours. A way to give the opportunity to those who travel with us, to approach a bit in the most genuine way to different cultural expressions of Colombia.
