- Small groups, free independent traveler, or household groups are favoured to promote distancing.
- Physical distancing does not need to apply to household units.
- Physical distancing should be practiced as much as possible if the group involves more than one household unit.
- Use face coverings when in situations of higher risk of virus transmission. Examples include: transportation, check in, during close-proximity instruction, helping each other set up shelters, or when camping on shared areas where distancing is difficult to maintain.
- Guides: our guides are responsible for adhering and monitoring the standard operating procedures during activities by guests and host communities.
- Cultural tours: Our cultural activities have changed to protect the indigenous communities by only visiting small communities in coordination with the local leaders. Guests are expected to adhere all SOP’s and will not be able to actively participate in activities like dances, drama and workshops. Homestay is only possible when guests sleep in a tent and interaction will only take place in open spaces.
- Outdoor adventures: It’s not advised for people to wear masks while doing physical exercise, therefore It’s important to keep proper social distance. Masks are obligatory when passing through communities.
- Camping: Only guests who are from the same household can sleep in the same tent during the experience. Equipment will be packed while wearing Personal Protective Equipment and washed with disinfecting detergent.
