                    As a sustainable travel company, we are in constant search of how we can improve the sustainability of our operations.  An example of our sustainable projects:

                    Sustainable Tourism Policy

                    Our partner, Martsam Travel, organizes trips focused on sustainability while respecting the natural environment, the communities, and their traditions, trying as much as possible to use suppliers committed to sustainability practices, and collaborating with them in the implementation of these practices that lead us to raise the quality of the services offered.

                    Environmental Friendliness (Eco-Friendly):

                    All the activities of the company are analyzed, and it considered in order to avoid, mitigate, reverse or compensate any kind of environmental impact, since the natural environment is an essential part of our product and therefore is vital for our daily survival.

                    Social and Cultural Responsibility

                    It implies that the company analyzes and takes into account the social and cultural background of the sites and their areas of influence, in which it develops activities, so that these result benefits the local inhabitants as much as possible. The cultural environment is the most charismatic part of our product and therefore conserving it is conserving our way of life.

                    Financial Sustainability

                    We make sure that our operation generates profits for the local communities and make sure the benefits are real, we also ensure that the payments to the services they provide are fair.

                    Our partner, Martsam Travel, cooperates with different service providers such as hotels, restaurants, community projects, leaders, and local guides, relying on the “Best Practices Agreement in Sustainable Tourism”, established with the Rainforest Alliance in 2006.

                    Tips are not included in the cost of the tour. You should plan to tip 10% in restaurants and for your guided services, however, tipping is never required.

                    Cultural norms vary within each Latin American country, even within each city within the country, however, we recommend the following measures to have a pleasant visit in each destination: Latin American culture in general tends to be closer and more informal than in others cultures, so there is usually always a friendly approach in all conversations, and going directly to the point could be considered offensive to some people. Personal space can be much shorter as well, but without being interpreted as sexual in nature. 

                    The schedules are also usually more relaxed and informal, however, this is not the case of VA EXPEDITIONS, since we will always respect the hours indicated in your itinerary. This may be different for other appointments that you can book on your own at other locations.

                    This depends on each itinerary, and will be indicated in the detail of the day. However, our itineraries always usually include free times to offer more flexibility to our guests. 

                    For any emergency, we appreciate contacting the following number: + (502) 5417-5517

                    At VA Expeditions we believe that every action we take should generate a positive impact on the communities and the environment of our entire production chain, which is why we carry out various activities focused on this objective. An example of our sustainable projects: 

                    Women’s Cultural Group and Maya Experience


                    This Maya Experience with the women’s cultural group in San Antonio Village is formed by the local Women’s Group made up of nine Mayan Belizean women.  You spend time in one or two homes that offer a very cool look back into a culture that is quickly disappearing…a time when the Maya depended on the land for everything from food to furniture to medicine.   


                    Come try your hand at ancient pottery making techniques with a group of the Mayan artisans, prepare and enjoy their delicious home-made lunch such as corn tortillas, tamales, and atole.  You also have a chance to purchase pottery and other crafts made by the ladies.  They are now training youth who are unemployed, from the community, so that they too can benefit from the tourism in their village.
