Our planet is overflowing with beautiful destinations, unique cultures, and important historic sites. There’s so much beauty here - but a lot of work needs to be done to protect it. As talk about climate change ramps up and the need for more drastic action grows, it’s important to consider the impact that we make as individuals. We can easily enjoy our planet and do our bit to protect it at the same time. We handpick hotels that are actively seeking to better the destinations they’re in, whether they’re supporting their community, preserving the natural environment, maintaining cultural traditions for future generations, or reducing their impact in other ways. Here are some of our favourite hotels across South America that are doing amazing things to leave the planet better than they found it. Save these hotels for a guilt-free trip.
