Nourish your MIND with Cultural Immersion & Responsible Tourism

Over the years we have made strong connections with many wonderful families in local indigenous communities and they have opened their hearts and homes to us. We feel fortunate to have developed such warm friendships throughout the years. We have learned first-hand all their beautiful traditions and they provide our travelers with real hands-on experiences in an intimate setting. We have always been very passionate about responsible tourism, as long as you support local people, respect their culture and environment you’re being responsible. It’s that easy and anyone who cares for a better place to live can do it!

We believe that travel and tourism can protect the world’s natural and cultural riches as well as create economic opportunities for many indigenous communities. We call it “Empowering Communities”  Travel enriches our lives, broadens our horizons, and mindful thinking. It also has the power to support and improve their quality of life. The communities we visit have developed wonderful projects worth experiencing. We’re dedicated to minimizing the negative impacts of tourism and maximizing its positive benefits for the people, culture, nature, and wildlife.
