If you enjoy travel but want to do it in a way that is ecologically responsible, eco-tours are a great vacation choice. From wildlife adventures to excursions that make contributions to local ecological societies, you can enjoy the native flora and fauna without damaging it for future generations. Here at Casa de la Sirena, we fully support eco-tourism and are proud to offer it as part of our list of services.
Most Mexico vacation villas are all about getting away and enjoying some time on the beach with a drink in hand—and there’s nothing wrong with that scenario. But if you’re looking for something a little bit beyond the traditional tropical vacation, we have the Mexico eco-tours you want.
How Eco-Tourism Helps Sustain the Environment
Eco-tourism is still a relatively new field, and the term is used to cover a variety of tourist options. For some, it means the chance to visit an ecological system without causing damage to the delicate balance that exists there. For others, it means visiting sights and towns that are integrally linked to the land. For still others, it has more to do with honoring natural resources by channeling funds into a system that seeks to preserve nature, wildlife, and the land.
Here at our Mexican beach villas, we offer opportunities to do all three of these.
- The ecological systems in and around Troncones are some of the most beautiful you’ll find in this part of Mexico. Because this area is still largely untouched by development, our visitors often come for the chance to bird watch and whale watch, see the hatching of the sea turtles, and take walking and biking tours of the natural landscape. Kayak tours and cave explorations are also some favorite eco-tour options here.
- The town of Troncones is one that has a long history of fishing and local produce production. A small, sleepy village that has always been tied to the land, Troncones has resisted efforts to build by putting the focus right where it belongs: on the ocean and the mountains. Although participating in fishing activities isn’t for everyone, it honors a long tradition of life here in Troncones, and you can even fry up your catch to remain tied to the land.
- You’ll also find plenty of opportunities to contribute to the local ecological systems through regular activities like hiking, biking, horseback riding, surfing, and even spending all your time on the beach. Conservation efforts and the tourist trade here are very much tied up together, and we all work together to ensure that our land remains free and pure for those who want to visit ten, twenty, or even fifty years from now.
Here at Casa de la Sirena, we welcome all types of vacationers and travelers. It doesn’t matter whether you want a chance to relax on the beach and watch the sunset every night, or if you plan on exploring the area on foot to get a good look at all the natural scenery. Our wide range of activities and amenities mean that you set the pace for your Mexican beach vacation getaway!
