Code of Conduct

To provide everyone with the very best vacation experiences, it’s important to respect and protect our destinations. Here are some things to remember during your stay in paradise.

Before arriving, we suggest researching your destination’s customs and traditions to make sure you’re respectful of the local culture. It’s also important to ask before taking pictures of people, traditional events, archeological sites and sacred locations. To support the local economy, we recommend picking up some handmade crafts or products but if you’re considering negotiating prices, please keep in mind that the sales of these products contribute to the livelihoods of many local families.

To avoid contaminating your destination’s natural habitats, please avoid wearing insect repellent, sunscreen and body creams when visiting reefs, cenotes or other bodies of water. It’s also important to refrain from feeding the local wildlife or removing any local flora and fauna from its natural environment.

Please respect local attractions when visiting by disposing of your waste in the appropriate containers, avoid smoking in prohibited areas and avoid touching or damaging the surface of sculptures, pyramids, etc. You can also help protect your destination’s natural resources by conserving water and avoiding the use of disposable plastics.
