If its not sustainable, its not the BLTA. Our core value is to develop a tourism sector for Brazil which is permanent and enriches the lives of people, while always preserving our natural environment.
"5-star hotels and 5-star communities"- is the ideal shared by every BLTA member.
In 2018 BLTA continues its collaboration with Fundação SOS Mata Atlântica, an innovative partnership of conservancy on the Archipelago of Alcatrazes, on the north coast of São Paulo.
Each month every BLTA member makes a contribution to guarantee the islands preserve their ecological balance and pristine natural status.
We'll also launch an annual BRAZILIAN SUSTAINABLE TOURISM AWARD to recognise model initiatives among our members.
