Create economic opportunities in traditional communities that provides better quality of life to locals.
Value the traditional culture, honor our ancestry and always respect biodiversity.
Foster travelers' connection with nature and with people from different social and cultural backgrounds to promote respect and world peace.
The community members are the protagonists of the experiences and each one involved in the tourism activities is paid for the services provided. To make it fair, the compensation is set by the residents themselves.
Part of the amount paid by the traveler is transferred to the community fund: a reserve accessed in case of need, such as for a power generator maintenance or for a medical emergency. Other part goes to a social and environmental investment fund managed by Braziliando, which aims to benefit the community and the biodiversity.
We encourage travelers to value local produce by purchasing typical handicrafts and food directly from the community members. The hosts themselves also contribute to the local economy, buying travel supplies directly from the community members or neighborhood villages.

In order to mitigate environmental impacts, trips are made in small groups and travelers must follow the code of conduct, co-created with community members.
Amongst other instructions, we ask travelers to take back non-organic waste for proper disposal, to use biodegradable hygiene products and not to collect anything from nature.
Braziliando manages the impact and value created for customers and for the community by the Satisfaction Surveys that are applied at the end of each experience.
The form sent to travelers intends to measure their satisfaction with each aspect of the trip and the form sent to community members seeks to verify their perceptions of travelers and the experience itself.
Thus, we identify opportunities for improvement and draw up an action plan with the community.
We took the B Impact Assessment to check our socio-environmental impactand scored over the 80 points needed to become a B Corporation. Now we need to follow the validation process and certification to continue our journey towards sustainability.
But we are constantly searching to evolve. Therefore, we count on your help to identify how to improve our performance, mitigate the negative impacts of our experience and enhance positive transformations. Critics or suggestions?Share it with us!
