2020 THE YEAR WE WRITE HISTORY
The current COVID 19 situation is disrupting many things, but one area was the most vulnerable one, that is: tourism and travel around the globe. We can say with confidence that this is unprecedented in many ways. A chain reaction of closing borders and in many cases complete shut downs have taken place in some cases to eliminate the virus and in others to slow it down.
It is our moment to act as tourism’s ambassadors and take action. If all of the jobs that are created from the moment a single booking is confirmed, one big voice would be created and it would say: “I am tourism. I am hurt at the moment. I am the industry that aims to unite people, unite dreams and share stories and right now I can’t do a single one of them.
How much does it cost to Travel to the
I represent the not just a country or a destination but every airline, small restaurant, hotel, yacht, bus, guide and a full supply chain of people that bring home food to their families. Unlike other industries, I act as a community that gathers families with their dreams, artisans with their work, artists with their art.
At the present moment people cannot travel, many countries have closed borders and everything is being done so COVID 19 can be stopped. It is an amazing effort that is coming with a price in search of the greater good, health for mankind.
I understand our dear travelers in their need to stay at home, they are putting their dreams on the side. Of course the first reaction is to cancel their trip and think of traveling later. But, sometimes later can be 6 months, 1 or 2 years or never… this is why I ask you on behalf of local communities, local businesses, travel agents, wholesalers, airlines and the smaller supplier that sells their produce, handcrafts and many other goods that you do not cancel – RE SCHEDULE.
The lovely destination you planned to visit on vacation will still be there, locals will be waiting with open arms and it will be an amazing vacation as it will have a stronger meaning. Keeping one of the greenest industries alive.
No one saw this coming, not you, not me, not all of our colleagues who already counted on giving out their services. We had already prepared the car that was going to pick you up, we had already prepared the welcome drink at your hotel, the museums had already opened their doors to share their history with you, the local artisans had already prepared to share their past and passion with you. RESCHEDULE; because we are still here and we are waiting for you.
Our team will wait with open arms for the return of our guests to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. We will be working remotely and doing a home office schedule until travelers return.
Each member of our team, will wait patiently, this is why it is important that you do not cancel your bookings, you should re-schedule for a future date.
Our reservations staff is on call to assist you in all necessary changes.
LATIN TRAILS TEAM, Your team always!!!
