Ecoconut, its values and objectives


1. What was Ecoconut Tours Inc.?

Ecoconut Tours Inc. was a Tour Operator devoted to developing ecotourism in close cooperation with the local communities and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of the Philippines. We shared with our visitors an incredible ecological and human experiment with the discovery of Olango island.

Our tour circuits made it possible for our visitors to discover a preserved tropical island by setting out for the exploration of the “Olango Island Wildlife Sanctuary”. Here it is possible to observe migratory birds at a site of exceptional beauty (in the presence of a guide), participating in activities such as swimming and snorkeling in the protected Marine zones. There is also a direct contact with the local culture thanks to the permanent contact which we have established with the local community (tasting of regional foods, possibility of staying one night with a local family, etc.).

Ecoconut Tours Inc. also offered you the possibility of doing Eco-tours “à la carte”, notably to Bohol and to Banaue.

  • To create an awareness in the local community of the stakes of their living environment;
