2018 has been a year of big changes at Totonal Viajes. The one we have noticed the most, it has been without a doubt the move of our offices and staff from Puebla, to Playa del Carmen in Quintana Roo.
This was an strategic decision to be closer to suppliers and travelers, while generating new partnerships with associations and regional initiatives. However, following our maverick desire to continuously co-evolve, after a few months of having settled in Playa del Carmen, we started to pursue a new goal: to promote regenerative tourism in Riviera Maya
Another significant fact of this year has been that the business has grown 148% with respect to 2017, which leads us to demonstrate that it is possible to promote sustainable tourism and be profitable. This growth also means that our team is expanding, and in 2018 there are 4 new members that have joined the company adding professional value to our fantastic group of passionate individuals.
What else have we achieved in 2018? Take a look at our annual infographic:
Undoubtedly, the demand of customers seeking added value to their holidays is increasing. In parallel to this, we find the fantastic ecotourism offer of rural cooperatives in Mexico. Why not join these two factors and create a tourism model that benefits all? Tourism has a transforming power that every traveler is part of with its travel choices.
At Totonal we understand market trends as an opportunity for the mission that led our founder to create a company with brain and heart a decade ago. Up until today, we continue to create internal processes to quantify our impact on communities, and we are proud that in 2018 we managed to generate an economic income of almost 1.5 million pesos to rural cooperatives in the states of Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Campeche, Chiapas, Oaxaca, Puebla and Veracruz.
Ten years on for our beginning, we are still a company with brain and heart and we continue to dream and co-create the planet we want through a more conscious and positive tourism. Thanks for being part!
