Our goal is to provide meaningful and responsible travel experiences that benefit both travelers and the destinations we operate in.

Environmental Friendliness:

All business activities are analyzed and taken into consideration in order to avoid, mitigate, compensate or reverse environmental impacts, because the natural environment is very important and it is complementary to our products; therefore it is indispensable for our daily survival.

Social and Cultural Responsibility:

The company analyzes and considers the social and cultural background of the sites and areas of influence in which it operates, so this results in the benefit of the local people. The cultural environment is the most charismatic part of our product and therefore, contribute to its conservation is a mode to preserve our way of life.

Financial Sustainability:

We ensure that our operations generate true revenues and profits for the communities, as well as our providers receive a fair payment.

Martsam Tour & Travel cooperates with the different service providers such as hotels, restaurants, community projects, local leaders and guides, based on the agreement for Best Practices in Sustainable Tourism, established by Rain forest Alliance in 2006.

Martsam Tour & Travel works with ProCrea, a foundation under the direction of the Guatemalan biologist Alfredo Valle, research, rescue and conservation work on sea turtles in the Nace pool and its surroundings.
