We are grateful for the recognition we have received over the past 15 years.

We create alliances,

for tourism to contribute to the regeneration of natural areas and the well-being of local communities.

In the last 50 years we have lost more than 50% of our forests and jungles, and more than 50% of rural communities have migrated from their lands for lack of opportunities.

At La Mano del Mono we develop innovative business models that enhance the connection of nature tourism companies and destinations with their markets, while promoting the conservation of natural areas.

What do our customers say?

I loved being able to see how much the companies have grown and how they have linked up with each other. Also how they have encouraged and inspired new entrepreneurs in their region. I learned a lot from it.

It exceeded my expectations and I find it a simple yet powerful tool to recognize the status of companies for more effective marketing.

Normally we had very theoretical workshops or trainings that overwhelm you as a community... On the contrary, Market Ready was a very human process, indescribable.

La Mano del Mono is a benchmark for sustainable tourism in Mexican PNAs, a great ally for FMCN to learn and share their learnings. I have known LMM for more than a decade and I have witnessed their evolution and how they have found their niche to continue contributing to the conservation of our country. Thank you for your work.
