Sustainability in the Rurrenabaque Region
The Rurrenabaque region has had problems with bad tourism practices in the past. Many companies have permitted the touching and even hunting of wildlife while also polluting the areas with mismanaged septic systems and waste disposal methods.
San Miguel del Bala has been certified in the tourism best practices program that the local government has begun to implement. As a business we have completed 88% of the criteria based in social and environmental best practices.
We will continue to support the certfication program and hopefully one day will be able to complete 100% of the requisites. For more information on the Rurrenabaque Tourism Certification Program, please click here.
