Eco-tourism

The policy adopted by the Araras Eco Lodge includes all concepts of eco-tourism, its best practices, respecting the current law in the Country, besides including the respect to local habits.

The Araras Eco Lodge not only disseminates these concepts to its associates - the great majority (75%) from Poconé, the closest city - but our influence extends through community and political work. Our director, André Thuronyi, is an active consultant of State and City Government agencies, such as Tourism and  Environment Secretariat. He was the City Secretary of Chapada dos Guimarães, is a permanent member of the GTC Amazônia, for the implementation of the Program for Development of Eco-Tourism in Legal Amazon (Proecotur), is an active member of ABAV/MT (of which he was the President in 1999/2001), is a vice-President of ADEPAM (Association for Defense of Pantanal), as well as of ABETA (Brazilian Association of Ecotourism and Adventure Tourism).

Concerning the touristic occupation in Pantanal, we defend the concept of strengthening the land owners in Pantanal, with guidance and financing, to help them create family-managed inns with up to 8 HU (housing units), being firmly against the implementation of large hotels for this region.
