Social Responsibility

Our commitment to the community and the environment.

Dear guests, welcome to our town and to Posta de Purmamarca.

We think tourism can be a valuable source of resources that can help the advance of the community, if controlled in such a way that it benefits visitors and locals alike.

We work so that both visitors and local inhabitants can fully enjoy nature and feel at ease in our picturesque colonial village. To this end, we have committed ourselves to articulating activities and programs with people, organizations, and institutions that work with us, in order to promote sustainable development and a more just and inclusive society.

We look forward to visitors coming to Purmamarca to discover, explore and share. That is why we call on your sensitivity to encourage other tourists and locals to avoid damaging, polluting, depredating or negatively transforming what nature has created over centuries and the native inhabitants have preserved. We are convinced that you and your family will echo our proposal by putting principles of coexistence, conservation and sanity into practice, and also by promoting enriching and respectful exchange of experiences among residents and visitors.

For this reason, we welcome suggestions and any other useful information aimed at the protection and preservation of this magical and beautiful place while keeping a harmonious link with our community. We conduct our business with passion and we are always trying to be as careful as we can. There are days we fail. There are things we know we can do better and we are working on.

We believe that “There are no successful companies in failed societies” (S. Schmidheiny) and hence our mission is to grow as a business and offer a unique high quality service following a corporate social responsibility program based on mutual respect and social and environmental promotion, while adhering to international sustainability standards. This is what corporate success ultimately means to us.

Thank you for your visit. We look forward to your feedback and hope you come back soon.

Lucy Vilte. Manager and Owner
