From one day to the next, tourism has changed... It is no longer possible to visit several countries in the same trip. We are no longer looking to visit emblematic attractions to take a photo and continue. We are no longer so convinced that more is better... We want to travel safely to natural environments, prioritizing quality time. We want to travel to learn, to grow; but understanding and respecting our planet.

In this context, we ask ourselves: What kind of tourism are we designing? What is its impact on society and the environment?

At La Mano del Mono we unite local leaders to create responsible tourism that generates wellbeing in host communities through the Market Ready Model. Market Ready guides adventure tourism companies to be ready as a sustainable business, creating collaborative alliances in nature destinations.

Thus, companies acquire capabilities to: create unique, creative experiences that are more adapted to the needs of their customers; connect with commercial allies in the market; and strengthen their business model in a strategic way.

At SECTUR we are convinced that by working with this program we are moving forward as a destination. Don't miss the opportunity to join us and build a sustainable Durango.

Rafael Sarmiento Aguirre, Deputy Secretary SECTUR Durango
