Responsible travel in Nicaragua with Coco Tours

"Travelling is an excellent way to bond and understand people. It allows the personal growth of the traveler and the host. Their resources must serve the sustainable development of populations visited"

"Responsible travel is a rising movement and an increasing trend that can change the way we travel forever. We hope you’ll join us in re-inventing tourism for the benefit of local people, tourists, the environment and the tourism industry at large." Miguel, Terra Tours Manager in some interwiev for magazines.

If you believe in responsible tourism and the partnership of local people in the holiday experience, then you have come to the right place.
