We met under a star-filled sky in Punta Gallinas in 2017. We were both guiding tourists to discover the magic of La Guajira. We did not know each other, but the universe conspired for us to begin an incredible journey together that led us to the creation of PuraGuajira Travel. Our purpose goes beyond each trip; what we want is that each of you speak beautifully about the region that hold our love.. ❤︎
Sustainable tourism is a way of traveling that is based on the respect of the travelers towards the people and places visited by a deeper approach to the reality of the country and positive cultural exchange between both parties. Contributing to the economic development of an area is for example to choose accommodation in places managed by the community, consuming fair trade products, and visiting and collaborating in solidarity projects that are carried out there. For us it is a way of traveling that has a positive impact on both sides, the communities visited and the traveler itself.
Do we really want to pass on an Earth that is covered in plastic?
Plastic pollution is everywhere, in our air, soil, rivers, oceans, beaches, and even in our drinking water. We use plastic for many reasons. It’s hard to avoid because it’s inexpensive, lightweight, and most of all... it’s convenient. But, the convenience and the savings aren’t really convenient or inexpensive. We are just sticking future generations with the bill and a big mess to try to clean up. Our commitment is to ban single-use plastic in all our tours and try to produce the minimum amount of rubbish possible.
