Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People make it easy to travel responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Mexico for Closer to the Sun. We appreciate those that donated to the carbon offset program in 2017. Your donations support a community tree nursery that is producing 10,000 trees a year for rural communities on the north coast of Haiti, providing the sequestration of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions. You can offset your carbon footprint when booking your 2018 reservation or by logging in at any time to donate! Not booked this year? You can still donate online.
