Groups of no more than 4 people
We will sleep in 3 - 4 star hotels with private rooms or guest houses of local people. This are houses with optimal functionalities such as light, electricity, beds and the necessary for a pleasant night. This will be if the community does not have places to stay, such as hotels.
In this tour we will go through very local places so we will stay in private houses and we will always try to have a private bathroom although this may not happen. There is the possibility that in these places the bathrooms are not of high standards especially on the hike to the Copper Canyon.
The hotel detailed in the itinerary may be changed, this will vary depending on availability and the number of people we are, although we will look for a hotel of equal or higher standard.
We will adjust to the itinerary although the access to the villages will change depending on the dates and availability of transportation, so the round trip will be with a combination of train, bus or private van with a maximum capacity of 10 people with the necessary amenities for the climate and the region.

Have an open and team mentality (not individualistic) - there will always be a better place in the vehicle, with better visibility, more comfort, for example.
Be flexible to the circumstances of the moment - unforeseen events can happen and although you will organize and plan in the best possible way, sometimes things come up that are out of our reach (The Monkey Experience). So adapting to change is always a good idea.
Encourage a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere
Be receptive and have a respectful attitude towards the group and towards the population and the country in general. Remember that fortunately (or unfortunately) not everyone thinks as one would like so always respect the thoughts of another person is the peace. Try to listen, understand and respect.

Occasionally we will eat in the houses with food made by locals so they will be dishes that are consumed in the region (generally vegetarian).
