The Biosphere Destination certification recognises the efforts made by this amazing community to promote sustainable tourism, help protect the environment and boost the local economy, and has been recognised as the best sustainability certification tool in the world.

Guía de Isora, in the south of the island of Tenerife, has been recognised as a sustainable tourist destination by the Responsible Tourism Institute (ITR), an entity endorsed by UNESCO and the World Tourism Organisation, committed to the integral insertion of the 2030 Agenda in organisations, companies and citizens.

This certification is a remarkable achievement for the municipality as it is not only the only municipality on the island of Tenerife to be Biosphere certified, but also highlights its commitment to sustainable development and responsible tourism practices. Let’s take a closer look at what parameters it has focused on and the achievements it needs to sustain over time.

One of them is the improvement in sanitation and water management or the protection of the natural resources that they possess and which are of unparalleled beauty.
