Live an authentic tourist experience!
Centro Esperanza’s Heritage Tourism and Community Service Program offers authentic tourism experiences led by youth from local communities. The tours are designed for visitors interested in experiencing first-hand the most outstanding elements of Loíza’s natural and cultural heritage while learning about Centro Esperanza’s impact and commitment to improving the quality of community life for Loiceños.
Trained as interpreter guides, our young leaders offer their visitors an authentic and memorable experience. The Program enables young people from the community to acquire work and professional experience in a safe space and develop skills that enhance their future job performance. In addition, it offers them the opportunity to enrich their knowledge about the natural and human history of the Loíza region, generate income for their services as interpreter guides and link them with the long and extraordinary history of community management of Centro Esperanza.
The visit includes a 2-hour interpretive tour, bird watching equipment, a musical experience with instruments and typical clothing for the bomba, and food from the traditional cuisine of Loíza.
