Respect for the Natural Environment

  • Avoid leaving trash on beaches and coves. Take your waste with you and use bins.
  • Respect protected areas and do not interfere with wildlife.
  • Use marked trails and routes to reduce erosion and minimize impact on the landscape.

Sustainable transport

  • Opt for public transportation, bikes, walking, or carpooling instead of renting a car if possible.

Sustainable Accommodation

  • Look for accommodations that have sustainability certifications or that promote green practices such as water and energy conservation, waste reduction, and using local products.
  • Participate in hotel recycling and conservation programs.

Local Economy

  • Eat at restaurants that serve local and seasonal produce, which helps support local producers and reduces your food's carbon footprint.
  • Buy local souvenirs and crafts instead of imported products.

Active turism

  • Participate in tours or activities that promote education about the island's history and natural environment.

Saving water and energy

  • Use air conditioning and heating systems consciously.

Plastic Reduction

  • Bring your own reusable water bottle and avoid buying disposable plastic bottles.
