Huellas in Spanish means footprints;
we want you to leave them at every place you visit: a beach, a trail on the forest, a local town.
Since our foundation in 2001 we believe that through the itineraries we design, we promote cultural and environmental awareness in all of our travelers and suppliers. As you leave your huellas, you will contribute to the purpose of eco-tourism, which is, enjoy the wildlife and local culture of every visited area but also help to its conservation for future generations.
Why to choose a knowledgeable travel designer?
