Careli Tours is committed to the conservation of Nicaragua’s vital ecosystems and wildlife, as well as cultural preservation and community development. Further, we are proactively committed to doing business with a clear focus on sustainability, and we assure you that the services provided to our customers are backed up with a solidly sustainable process to prevent environmental damage and honor social responsibility wherever we go. And we are pleased to note the importance of sustainable practices to our increasingly social- and environmentally-conscious clients; living up to their expectations is another good reason for us to believe in and operate a sustainably responsible travel company.
In May, 2007, as a clear sign of our commitment to authentic ecotourism, we signed an agreement with Rainforest Alliance, preparing under their strict guidance, to advance and improve our environmental, economic, and socio-cultural business practices in the Nicaraguan tourism industry.
In December, 2010, Rainforest Alliance completed their evaluation of more than 400 items on their list of sustainable points our operations must address. Careli’s approval score was 89%.
In July, 2015, we began again the evaluation process that leads to official certification, and we’ll bet you can guess what happened next: Yes, Careli Tours is a company fully certified by Rainforest Alliance!
