Ecotourism is one of the best alternatives to attain true sustainable development in rural communities. Alltournative is the pioneer in ecotourism in the State of Quintana Roo; Mexico. Since 1999, it has developed eco-tourist projects that have benefited the economic, social and cultural development of various Maya communities. The sustainable development of the Maya communities is supported by the agreements made with community groups, or ejidos, where the communities inside this area of influence are committed not only to achieve social and economic development, but also to avoid logging and hunting in the areas visited by tourists and beyond. In each ecotourism project, Alltournative has achieved significant economic sustainable development for the inhabitants, established programs for cultural and ecologic preservation as well as promoted the natural and cultural treasures of Mexico.
