Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.
4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.

Then be surprised as contemporary Cuzco comes to the fore: a fabulous spa, the city's first outdoor pool and stylish restaurants serving cutting-edge local cuisine. This intimate urban retreat has just 55 suites, each enriched with oxygen and with its own private bar where guests (or their private butler) can create drinks accented with fresh ingredients grown at and around the hotel. As with all of the suites, the furnishings and facilities have been designed to provide the utmost comfort and to reflect the authentic charm of Palacio Nazarenas. The suites range in size from 42m2 to 60m2, with some of the bathrooms being over 20m2 - a unique feature in a historic building of this type.

 Casa Gangotena - Quito
Luxury Room
Situated in a newly-restored historic mansion overlooking Plaza San Francisco, the three-story Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel harbours 31 rooms, a showcase of eye-catching style, contemporary design, antiques, fine furnishings, modern technologies and quintessential comforts. Beautifully- and eclectically-appointed, the hotel invites its guests to explore and to relax, whether in the dining room, glassed-in patio, garden redolent with the perfume of native flowers, wood-panelled library, or else atop its panoramic third-floor terrace. Beyond its doors, the world heritage wonders of Quito, as well the vastly-different and diverse worlds of Ecuador itself, await. Sophisticated and eclectic, historic yet contemporary, at Casa Gangotena style, passion and service blend seamlessly and delightfully. Casa Gangotena's rooms, with both double and king-size beds, are arrayed across all three of its floors. Due to the property's heritage character, rooms vary in size, although all are comfortably ample, averaging 35 square metres (377 sq. ft.) in area. All benefit from the mansion's elegant, tall ceilings, drawing the bright Andean sunlight into their interiors. Their decoration plays off rich carpets, towering window frames, flowing curtains and Art Deco-style furniture such as desks, armoires, tables and armchairs. All the rooms are air-conditioned, carpeted, non-smoking and sound-proofed, with en-suite bathrooms (nearly all with separate bathtubs and showers), and with telephones, intelligent key-cards, wireless internet and flat-screen TVs with international cable channels. On the ground floor, two Luxury rooms give onto the garden. On the first floor, the Balcony Junior Suite overlooks the garden with views south, while there are nine Luxury rooms and four Plaza View rooms. One floor up, we have eight Luxury rooms and four Plaza View rooms. Two Luxury rooms complete the picture on the third floor. On both the first and second floors, one suite can beseparated to make two connecting or individual Luxury rooms.
