From one day to the next, tourism changed... the way we used to travel is no longer viable.
Still, we think it's a great opportunity to do things better.

La Mano del Mono invites you to join the more than 450 tourism ventures in Mexico and Central America that have already strengthened their value chains through the Market Ready model. Committed to conserving natural environments and generating wellbeing in host communities, we work alongside local leaders to create responsible and inclusive tourism.

In interaction with other tourism companies you will learn to design transformative experiences, adapted to market trends; connect with business partners; and strengthen your business model in a strategic and sustainable way.

At Conservation International Mexico we work with nature tourism strategies to strengthen the conservation of biodiversity, promoting a fair, inclusive and sustainable economy for people. Don't miss the opportunity to join us and contribute to the conservation of the coast of Chiapas and Oaxaca.

There are already more than 450 enterprises throughout Mexico and Central America that have strengthened their value chains with La Mano del Mono.

On this occasion, only 12 companies will be selected in Costa de Oaxaca Chiapas and will have the opportunity to access the Market Ready program, which will be held from October in a blended manner.

If you are a nature tourism service provider on the coast of Oaxaca and Chiapas, don't hesitate to sign up!
