Voluntourism in the Everglades with Mandarin Oriental Miami
April 6, 2009By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Mandarin Oriental MiamiThough some guests may never want to leave the infinity-edge swimming pool overlooking Biscayne Bay, Mandarin Oriental Miami offers some excellent opportunities to venture farther afield in South Florida. Case in point: The hotel's voluntourism program in the Florida Everglades, which allows guests to discover an important National Park (and World Heritage site), and do something good for the community while on vacay. On an inspiring day trip, you'll help preserve the environment with tree planting, recycling projects, and exotic plant removal programs. Explore the park's walking trails to experience wildlife up close, or try the local tradition of "slogging"-- wading through shallow waters. Boxed lunches are provided by the hotel. This is sustainable tourism at its finest.
