REDTURS is a network of indigenous and rural communities, institutions and professional skills human resources devoted to supporting the sustainable development of tourism. We encourage self-management of tourism as a way for communities to assume the leadership in the planning, operation, monitoring and development of their businesses. Tourism can contribute to making some community goals a reality provided that we make from it an activity that is economically viable, socially oriented, culturally enriching and environmentally responsible. 
This website supplies tourists, tour operators, public and private institutions with comprehensive and updated information about such community tourism destinations as well as the relevant tools and approaches for their promotion and development.
