Born from our passion for Brazil, alter-nativ Brazil has set a goal of sustainable development applied to tourism based on the environmental, social, economic and ethical balances. We pretend indeed to provide our clients with top quality services and, at the same time, ensure equitable benefits to local populations, particularly in the regions North and Northeast, the least developed of the country.
alter-nativ Brazil is committed to:
- Protecting the environment by scrupulously conforming to regulations laid down by the Ibama (Brazilian National Institute for the protection of fauna and flora) as such as, for example, restrictions for access to National Parks (Fernando de Noronha, Lençois Maranhenses, etc.. )...
- Preferably recruiting Brazilian staff and paying them fair remuneration that is beyond the average practiced in Brazil.
- Inform our local partners (guides, drivers, hotel owners ...) about sustainable tourism.
- Preferably work with Brazilian partners and local hotels rather than the international hotel chains so that 100% of the cost of your holidays contributes to the economic development of Brazil..
Finally, when they book through us, our clients are committed to travelling with a sense of respect for Brazil, its people, its culture and its way of life.
alter-nativ Brazil is a member of the Abeta (Brazilian Association of Ecotourism and Adventure Tourism).
