      Ensuring

   local participation

              and access to the benefits of tourism




Most of the expenses for a visit to the islands occur before leaving the country of origin.

Currently, as little as 6% remains in the local economy.

A deserved and fair distribution of benefits from tourism goes in hand with respect to conservation and good tourism practices.
