Smart Voyager is a certification program of sustainable tourism for South America.
The Smart Voyager program was created in 1998, with the aim to minimize the environmental impacts of tourism.
In the year 2002, Smart Voyager was recognized by UNESCO, as an example that should be implemented in all of the natural patrimonies of humanity. Smart Voyager is a founding member of the Sustainable Tourism Certification Network of the Americas.
The Smart Voyager program endeavors to convert the concept of sustainability into something real, practical and necessary in the context of a competitive market, with an aim to improve the relationship of tourism with its surroundings.
Smart Voyager considers rigorous environmental, social and security norms, that, when completed, guarantee a decrease in the environmental impacts that a tourist operation may generate, ensuring direct benefits to the local population and an active participation by the tourist in the conservation of natural resources.

Smart Voyager has expanded to include hotels and tourist operations throughout Latin America. The goal of Smart Voyager is to reach tourism operations of all sizes from large chains in major cities to ecolodges in remote mountain villages. Through training programs and materials, Smart Voyager, in collaboration with the Rainforest Alliance, educates tourism operators in how to reduce the negative environmental impact of their business and provide support for local communities.
