We believe that the current tourism and leisure activity offer is mainly focussing on the foreign touristic sector and that it does not include the locals sufficiently. This does not benefit the tourists nor the local population since the tourism industry offers high prices and very little authentic experiences.

We want the local population to be more visible within this touristic model and we want the locals to contribute to the demand of leisure activities and to participate in this alternative tourism. Our principal pillars are the new networks and social relationships that arise from the proposed activities as well as the protection of the environment and the diffusion of the Canarian culture.

In order to achieve these objectives we count on our highly qualified and enthusiastic team. Get to know them:
