In Colreservas we are committed to sustainable development in tourism and we invite you to apply the following responsible behaviors that as travelers you should keep in mind:
ENVIRONMENTAL AND NATURAL HERITAGE PROTECTION
- Throw garbage in containers ready for this purpose. If you visit nature destinations where there is no availability of cans or other containers, please keep the waste generated until you find a suitable place.
- Where possible, do separation of solid waste. This will allow recycling processes, using waste for other uses.
- Make proper use of water. Avoid wasting this valuable resource.
- Do not contaminate water sources such as waterfalls, rivers, lakes and seas. Avoid throwing solid or liquid waste affecting water sources.
- If you visit places that are part of the natural heritage, meet the standards set by each site. Avoid damaging, altering or in any way affecting ecosystems and landscapes.
PROTECTION OF FLORA AND FAUNA
- Do not buy, hold or sell species of wild flora and fauna. This commercialization is illegal and is punishable by law.
