Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.
4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.

 Finch Bay Hotel - Galapagos
Standard 3 Nights - All Inclusive Program Room
A visit to the Finch Bay Eco Hotel is always special. Incredible hospitality, Cordon Bleu gastronomy, beach front living, a freshwater swimming pool, hammocks in each room, and plush beds with fine linens: a truly unique way to savour the Galapagos Islands experience. After all, we each have our own idea of what makes a successful vacation. Some want to check as many Big 15 animals off their bucket list as possible. Others prefer to pursue their favourite adventure sports like kayaking, scuba diving, biking, and hiking, and Galapagos in this respect is a world-class destination. Still others want to just lie back and take it easy. Or maybe you want to do a little bit of each. And that’s why you come to the Finch Bay Eco Hotel.
