responsible travel

At Uncover Colombia, we are committed to the sustainability of our country and to generating experiences that allow our visitors to learn and contribute to this process. That is why we strive to work with local communities to create unique experiences for you to immerse in our culture whilst preserving the environment and natural resources for future generations to come.

We promote excellent social, cultural, economic and environmental practices in the various destinations around the country where we market and operate. This ensures we are continuously improving processes in all our areas of action.

To respect our ethical convictions and comply with current regulations, we are committed to share and promote:

  • Good sustainability practices among our team, suppliers, customers and the general public.
  • The protection of cultural and natural heritage, while preventing illegal trafficking of Colombia’s cultural assets as well as its flora and fauna in compliance to the respective established regulations.
  • The purchase and consumption of goods and services produced and marketed by the local community.
  • The responsible use and conservation of water.
  • Proper waste management amongst our team, customers and suppliers.
  • Responsible tourism by advocating for the “Prevention of Social and Commercial Exploitation of Children and Adolescents” (CSEC). Uncover Colombia denounces the sexual abuse of children. Colombian Law (Law 679 of 2001 and Law 1336 of 2009).

Supporting Local

communities

One of the things that make Colombia so special is its people. Their kindness, warm welcoming and generosity bring meaning to your travel. And because they are so important and valuable, we think we should be thankful and make them benefit from our activity.

We are aware of the enormous benefit a sustainable and responsible tourism can bring to any community. Therefore, we work with Travolution Colombia, a non-profit organization that helps rural and indigenous communities to develop sustainable tourism. We help them to provide the training and support these communities need to develop tourism activities they can benefit from.

Natural and Cultural Heritage

Colombia hosts more than 6,600 species of animals and 51,220 species of plants so it’s essential for us to protect it as much as we can. That's why, we respect and promote the conservation of natural heritage. We comply with Law 17 of the 1981 "Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora" agreement, signed March 3, 1973 in Washington, D.C. We also comply with Law 1333 of 2009 that established the environmental sanctioning procedure.

We respect and promote the preservation of our cultural heritage in accordance with Law 1185 of 2008, which safeguards, protects, recovers, conserves, sustains and educates people about a country's cultural heritage. We also support the prevention and rejection of illicit trafficking of cultural properties in accordance with Law 63 of 1986, which approves the "agreement of measures to be taken to prohibit and prevent the import, export and transfer of illicit cultural goods,” signed in Paris November 17, 1970.
