Can you imagine exploring the Lacandon jungle, camping under the stars and listening to the sound of its native fauna? Or maybe you prefer to meet local communities and learn about their customs and traditions? Let us take you on a journey through the world of tourism, where adventure, nature and culture merge to create unforgettable experiences.

Discover how customized sustainable tourism experiences can transform the lives of communities.

As you may well know, tourism has evolved and specialized. Today it offers increasingly exciting and authentic options. It's not just about sunbathing on a paradisiacal beach, but about really connecting with the places we visit and their people. That is why low-impact travel, large companies and alliances are giving way to small artisanal companies that seek to design tailor-made trips, offering unique and personalized experiences. Today, tourism is a dynamic, growing and increasingly specialized activity. Access to a wide variety of destinations and the possibility of traveling more frequently has generated interest not only in traditional sun and beach tourism, but also in unconventional activities ranging from contact with nature to integration in the daily activities of local communities.

Multiple sources point to this evolution of the sector. Below we share some of the trends:

  1. Online tourism: Most bookings and interaction in general take place online, which has been driven by the increasing use of mobile devices.
  2. Large alliances and growth of small companies: While large corporations cater to a traditional market, more and more niche players are looking for small, artisanal companies to design tailor-made trips. This has led to a growth of small travel companies, but also to alliances and mergers between the big players in the industry.
  3. Women's participation in tourism: Women are taking an increasingly important role in the industry, from company directors to tour guides and independent travelers. This segment is advancing more than ever.
  4. Isolation tourism: The growing number of tourists in traditional destinations has led specialized tourists to increasingly look for places where there are not so many people or even remote places to enjoy a natural and authentic experience.
  5. Co-creation of experiences: More and more tourism companies and tourists are working together to create unique and personalized experiences. Customer needs are no longer just a statistic, but part of tourism product development.
  6. Wellness and sports tourism: This type of tourism continues to gain ground, as more and more people travel in search of lifestyle-enhancing experiences, whether through detox trips or outdoor adventures.
  7. Untraditional lodging: Collaborative lodging platforms continue to consolidate their position in the market, and are also becoming interested in entering the experience market, offering not only lodging, but also experiential and low-impact tourism options.
  8. Promotion becomes communication: Tourists not only want to know what places to visit, but they also seek to become more involved in improving the destination they visit. For this reason, tourism promotion is becoming a two-way communication, in which tourists also contribute ideas and solutions to improve the sustainability and quality of the destinations they visit.
