We strive to be a company that enhances the quality of life of every human that interacts with it. Our team believes in doing business in a respectful and mutually beneficial way in each of our destination. We do our best to share tourism opportunities and some of our benefits with the communities we work in. In fact, we want all our activities to have a positive effect on the local economy.
Making a Difference in Local Communities
- Since 2012, Barefoot Surf Travel has sponsored at least one sports team in equipment and uniforms. Helping the kids is important to us, as we believe they are the roots of the future.
- We create the maximum of job opportunities possible inside the local communities we operate in. We do this by collaborating with local people for board rentals, board repairs, beach transportation, surf lessons, and boat adventures.
- We strive to provide high quality working conditions, and we treat our local employees and partners with respect and dignity.
We ask our clients to bring their used books, clothes or sports equipment to donate, as these seemingly useless items could be precious in different parts of the world.
