The care of the natural resource for future generations is a fundamental pillar in the development of our daily activities; It is why waste recycling, wastewater treatment, the use of thermal water as a source of thermal energy, preservation of flora and fauna, among others; are some of the activities developed to contribute to the growth of sustainable tourism.
Among the actions that are ongoing, in December 2015, it took place the signing of a Tripartite Agreement for Scientific Collaboration in the Napo River basin, signed by a party by the Ministry of Water (SENAGUA), Termas Papallacta S.A., and the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) to investigate the impact of climate change on organisms and functioning of the aquatic ecosystem. The results obtained will help to a better understanding of the causes and seeking measures to help mitigate and adapt to the changes caused by this phenomenon.
“Thinking about the health of the community living in Papallacta, the services of our medical staff are available to primary health care, emergency and medication at no cost whenever these are required.”
The development of our productive activities has given the community staff (approximately 40% of the same native of the area) improved skills in hospitality, health and safety knowledge and sustainable tourism best practices, in order to contribute to the tourism destination development activities.
