Responsible tourism

We believe that it is the responsibility of all tour operators and agencies to promote and encourage eco-friendly practices amongst their clients and employees. Happy Gringo is proud to directly contribute:
  • The first agency to be awarded the prestigious Smart Voyager award, recognised as the highest merit in ecological practices in Ecuador.
  • Recycling of office waste (paper, plastic and tetra-pack) on a weekly basis.
  • Supporting local charities with donated clothes, school supplies & funding of the annual Christmas party for kids in the poor community of Techo Propio.
  • Over 90% of our office staff are Ecuadorians, giving them an opportunity for fair employment, and the benefit of afiliation to the Social Security system.
  • Happy Gringo is an Ecuadorian registered company, so our taxes are 100% paid in Ecuador, supporting the local economy.
