What We Believe

AME members constitute a partnership of non-profit conservation organizations, private sector tour operators, educational organization, community organizations, and individuals that are working collaboratively to create a region that will provide high-quality sustainable tourism experiences, protect the natural and cultural attributes of the region, and create healthy and resilient communities.

How We Work

The goal of AME is to directly link tourism development to sustainable and resilient communities through improving competitiveness, safety, market access, and profitability of sustainable tourism ventures in Mesoamerica. Achievement of this goal will ultimately reduce threats, effectively manage visitor impacts, and create financial benefits and management capacity for protected areas in Mesoamerica.
