The ini­tia­tive is part of the project “Ru­tas Turís­ti­cas Difer­en­ci­ado­ras, Au­to­cer­ti­fi­cación y Comer­cial­ización del Tur­ismo de Base Co­mu­ni­taria en la Región de Los Ríos Trawun 2.0”, fi­nanced by the In­no­va­tion Fund for Com­pet­i­tive­ness (FIC) of the Re­gional Gov­ern­ment of Los Rios and its Re­gional Coun­cil, and ex­e­cuted by the Trans­dis­ci­plinary Cen­tre for En­vi­ron­men­tal Stud­ies and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment (CEAM), of the Aus­tral Univer­sity of Chile, in con­junc­tion with 30 ini­tia­tives and or­ga­ni­za­tions in the area.

It is there­fore no co­in­ci­dence that the com­mu­nity-based tourism and sol­i­dar­ity econ­omy pro­gram has five years of ex­pe­ri­ence, which have al­lowed en­trepreneurs to em­power them­selves and ac­quire new knowl­edge, to­gether with de­fend­ing their ances­tral ter­ri­tory.

One of its most im­por­tant achieve­ments was the es­tab­lish­ment of a com­mu­nity-based tourism co­op­er­a­tive, the first of its kind at na­tional level. It also stands out for hav­ing in­di­vid­ual ini­tia­tives and ini­tia­tives in com­mu­ni­ties.

As you can see, all this work has an in­ter­est­ing pro­jec­tion that will ben­e­fit the com­mu­ni­ties and their com­mit­ment to “good liv­ing,” linked to the Ma­puche cul­ture and its close re­la­tion­ship with na­ture and the sus­tain­able use of re­sources, with­out leav­ing aside the ances­tral spir­i­tu­al­ity. If you want to ex­pe­ri­ence mean­ing­ful tourism, this is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity!
