Intrepid to offer indigenous experiences in Latin America and beyond
Intrepid Travel has announced that it is set to offer more than 100 global indigenous experiences heading into 2023, including projects in Central and South America.
The company first joined the Reconciliation movement in Australia in 2018, partnering with First Nations groups to build travel experiences, report on progress and raise awareness through tourism.
Company offers 100 indigenous experiences
While authentic community-based tourism has always been core to Intrepid's product, since 2020 the company has been significantly building on its indigenous experiences.
Among the 100 experiences are several new offerings for 2023, including a Mayan village medicinal garden visit and textile weaving workshop on Intrepid's 'Real Central America' itinerary and a visit to an Indigenous Shaman on Intrepid's 'Maya Encounter' tour in Guatemala.
Additional Latin America highlights include:
Mexico: On Intrepid's 'Premium Mexico Yucatan Highlights' trip, groups will meet and tour the farm of a native Mayan family, followed by a hands-on cooking class before coming together to enjoy a traditional meal.
Costa Rica: While on Intrepid's 'Best of Costa Rica' trip, travellers can visit and learn about the traditions of the Terraba River Indigenous Community, who have survived off the land for over 500 years.
Sara King, Intrepid's general manager for Purpose, said: “Indigenous tourism has the power to bring travellers closer to the communities that shaped destinations, honouring their customs and unique history while paving a new path for peace and reconciliation.”
