Sustainable Tourism: As you will be aware by now, Outback Adventures is a responsible company.
We take our work seriously and our main objective is to make sure that every single one of our customers enjoys their experience on one of the Outback Adventures and the Dominican Republic.
With this in mind, we believe that it is our duty to put back, it’s the right thing to do, simple as that.
Sustainable tourism is responsible tourism and basically is an initiative that allows other cottage and countryside industries to survive and benefit in conjunction with an excursion company such as ours.
