Actions taken to promote environmental or social sustainability

EcoFiwi is a company born out of love for nature and the environment and that is why from the beginning, we have been determined to protect, preserve and restore our mangroves, while offering an activity where you can enjoy and learn from these wonderful ecosystems.

ACTIVITIES IN FAVOR OF THE MANGROVES AT THE OLD POINT REGIONAL PARK:

• Constant Vigilance. Every tour with visitors transforms itself in a patrol trip to maintain presence with the aim to avoid environmental crimes. When we witness environmental crimes, we make sure to notify the competent authorities.

• Cleaning campaigns. With the support of the national army, government, environmental police, tourist police and educational institutions we have undertaken various cleanups in the mangroves. On each tour, visitors are encouraged to retrieve any object from the sea, especially plastic; this action in order to raise awareness. The plastics recovered from our cleanup campaigns and tours are sent to ECOBLOQUES, a company that grinds and converts these elements into blocks for building houses.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

• Snacks offered to visitors are prepared with local sea and island food purchased from local artisanal fishermen and farmers in the area. We sell only local island products. Our guide is a bilingual islander who, in turn, is an artisanal fisherman.

DURING THE TOUR:

• We provide a "briefing" to our visitors about the required behavior when visiting a protected area to minimize possible negative impacts. Visitors are taught what constitutes a mangrove swamp and their environmental importance. Technical and ancestral information is also provided. We make sure that our visitors do not step on seagrass, manipulate marine life and remove sea shells or other natural elements from these ecosystems.

  • Since we arrived we felt at ease! The experience is amazing with the transparent kayaks and The Marvin guide with your experience. We learned about the animals that inhabit the mangrove and enjoyed many fish. When we were finished we were offered typical island food. Super recommendable .

  • The tour is very different from the other activities they offer on the island, it is calm, quiet and very personalized. It cost us $90,000 each person, and we made the reservation from the day before by WhatsApp. Upon arrival Tammy explains tidi and offers to keep your bags, but you must report what you leave and show up to the amount of money you are leaving. They lend you snorkeling masks that are previously disinfected. Insect repellent should be applied as you must walk for about 5 minutes to get from the property to the kayak at sea. The guide on the tour is Marvin, he explained how to row. Shoes should be removed before boarding the kayak so as not to scratch it. It is very nice the experience you see jellyfish, and a bank of fish under the mangroves. In the end you are greeted with a delicious typical snack and there is also option for vegetarians (something scarce on the island). Highly recommended
