● You must maintain order and cleanliness in the beaches and natural areas you visit. Do not litter or leftover food. Take special care in protected natural areas. Try to minimize the generation of waste, reject products with unnecessary packaging and choose to use recyclable packaging.
● Take care of the rooms and the different facilities at your service. Treat the locals and employees of the hotels with respect. Remember to drink in moderation so as not to affect other people with possible alcohol-induced behaviors.
