The advantages of a 100% eco-friendly itinerary:
Excursions in respect of wild animals
Mass tourism often includes bad treatmente of animals. With Mexikoo, we do only propose excursions respecting animals. We do not bother them in their natural habitat, respect security and well-being distances during observations, and prohibit tours with captive animals.
Because today, eco-friendly does not necessarily go in pair with rustic. We have selected eco-friendly / eco-chic hotels which try to reduce their energy consumption and reduce their impact on nature. That way, you will travel comfortably while respecting the environment.
We gift our travelers with an eco-traveler kit (biodegradable sunscreen and repellent, iron straws, etc) at the beginning of the trip in order to limit their impact on the environment, and reduce their plastic consumption the most. We are also using, when posible, alternative, eco-friendly ways of transportation.
Integration of local populations
The profit from the tourism industry should be distributed with more equity. That’s why we include and promote local communities’ projects in our itineraries. This way, we enable some families and take them out of poverty thanks to tourism.
Balance the ecological impact
We all know travelling has an impact on the environment. The idea isn’t to stop travelling of course, but rather to balance our ecological impact by travelling more responsibly.
Donate to a Mexican NGO
Mexikoo donates a part of its benefits to a Mexican NGO called “Sea Shepherd Mexico” and thus participates in actions to preserve endangered animals such as humpback whales, to conserve ecosystems, or collect waste.
What should I bring ?
Best travel seasons: - February – March (to see maximum biodiversity). - For weather: March - April - May - September - October - It is possible to travel all year to Baja California to enjoy diving/ Snorkel/ landscapes. - Summer months are not recommended for people who suffer from heat.
Do you need to bring warm clothes? It can get cold in the morning during the winters, so we advise you to think about bringing warm sweaters and coat.
