Sustainable Tourism

Torremayor Hotels already has the Sustainable Tourism Distinction, graphically recognized by the S Seal, it guarantees the visitor that the tourist service that has this distinctive, meets global criteria of tourist sustainability, in the socio-cultural, environmental and economic fields.

Hotels that have this distinction are highlighted by:
  • The efforts of the tourist accommodation services that have made progress in any area of sustainability.
  • Differentiate yourself from other hotels that do not have this recognition.
  • Guarantee tourists the company's commitment to the pillars of sustainability.
Torremayor Hotels are continually committed to the environment and recycling and sustainability processes. To do this, we have implemented a series of actions in our facilities and services to work in accordance with environmental and health care.

Tourist awareness

CSEC: Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Girls, Boys and Adolescents in the context of Travel and Tourism.

According to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the commercial sexual exploitation of children and adolescents (abbreviated as CSEC), in the context of tourism, is “organized trips from within the tourism sector, or from outside the sector, but using their structures and networks, with the fundamental objective that the tourist have sexual relations with residents at the destination ”.

Responsible Tourist Code of Conduct

The National Tourism Service, SERNATUR, drafted the responsible tourist code, so that visitors to tourist destinations are aware of sustainable attitudes.

We invite you to read all the points included in each of the recommendations.
Rate local traditions and customs

  • Before traveling, ask about the local customs and traditions of the tourist destination you will visit (customs festivals, ephemeris, anniversaries, among others), so that you can better share, participate and integrate with the community.

  • Learn a few words in the native language. This will allow you to establish more meaningful contact with the local community.

  • Respect and protect everything that makes a destination a unique and different place: from its history, its architecture and its cultural, natural and own values such as: religion, music, art, cuisine, among others. For example, ask for consent to take pictures inside churches, national monuments or the local community.
Support the local economy

  • Prefer local handicraft items and products made at the destination, this will allow you to contribute to the development of family, retail and small-scale economies.

  • Treat local vendors and artisans with respect and kindness and promote a fair and voluntary business relationship between producers and consumers.

  • Do not buy products that are obviously counterfeited, or that are prohibited by national or international regulations.

  • When it comes to acquiring tours, always try the established trade to avoid scams and deception. Prefer tourist services that are operated by inhabitants of the commune or destination.

  • Find out about products that are legally restricted from entering or leaving the country visited.
Respect the environment

  • Buy products that do not require the use of endangered plants or animals for their production.

  • Prefer group outings that save resources, money, fuel and a decrease in your carbon footprint. Find the most efficient and least polluting way to get around.

  • Reduce, Reuse and Recycle solid waste during your trip. Bring your own water bottle to refill, avoid buying products with unnecessary packaging and packaging, and do not accept plastic bags to receive purchases of products that you can transport in another way.

  • Reduce your water and electricity consumption in the tourist accommodation establishments you visit (ask to use your towels and sheets for more than a day and when leaving a room remember to turn off the lights and air conditioning).
Be careful when visiting wild, heritage, archaeological or other areas that seem fragile and / or valuable to you.

  • Try to return the garbage generated on your visit to these areas (including organic waste), otherwise it could alter the diet of native wildlife, litter the landscape and affect the rest of the visitors.

  • Choose routes that cause the least impact on the landscape, favoring existing roads and trails. Prefer guided tours, thus avoiding accidents and reducing soil erosion and compaction in protected areas, while strengthening local work.

  • Do not commit environmental crimes. If you visit a protected area remember that there is a regulation and that this was created to preserve places and species of great ecological value and in many occasions in danger of extinction.

  • Do not feed wildlife.

  • Respect the signs and indications of existing communities in the area you visit. This will allow a safer visit for you, your family and the environment.

  • Do not remove natural resources, such as fossil stones, snails, plants, flowers, or others, from their original environment.

  • Contribute to the maintenance of the infrastructure and equipment present in the protected areas by paying the requested fee and using the facilities appropriately.
Be an informed and respectful traveler

  • Comply with local and national laws and regulations.

  • Respect human rights and protect children from exploitation in any of its forms, especially sexual and labor.

  • Find out how you can get medical assistance or contact your embassy (for foreign tourists) in an emergency.

  • Inform yourself of the meteorological conditions when you access mountain ranges or of variable hydrometeorological conditions. If you make tours alone or in a group to the mountain, inform and leave a record of your visit at the Carabineros, CONAF or another pertinent institution.

  • Inquire at tourist information offices that have official public or private institutional support, in order to obtain objective, updated information and services and activities that comply with the legal provisions of the places you visit.
