How much do we know about sustainable tourism? Tourism is an important factor for the development of paradisiac places around the world, let's focus on a particular area to talk about, the Caribbean. After analysing the situation in Mexico and Punta Cana, Sirenis Hotels & Resorts understands the need to prioritise information so that every tourist that enjoys our beaches, cares and protects them too. Therefore, trending interest in the environment can help the valuation and growth of our cultural heritage.

So, let's delve a little deeper into the topic. Sustainable tourism is tourism that follows the principles of sustainability, minimising impact on the environment and local culture, while contributing to generate income and employment for the local population.

It may be complex to differentiate the terms sustainable and eco. But nevertheless; There are great differences between the two. Sustainable implies the satisfaction of human needs, impacting the natural and cultural resources of a locality as little as possible. In this way, it is intended to maintain balance for future generations and ensure social and environmental welfare. On the other hand, eco-tourism is the process by which the preservation of natural resources is sought without looking at the cultural, social or economic affections that this may lead to.
