Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, June 16th 2009 --- The modern Dream Society Traveler is looking for a unique travel experience, combining nature with culture, comfort with authenticity, leisure-learning with relaxation and high class service with social and environmental responsibility. In order to attend to this growing demand for sustainable tourism, Brazil has developed the official Sustainable Tourism Standard, certifying select accommodations and destinations. Intelligent Leisure Solutions and the Discover.Travel Group support this initiative and feature certified hotels in special Eco-Travel Packages. The hotel Canto das Aguas – translated “Song of the Waters” - is the first hotel to be certified under the official Brazilian Sustainable Tourism Standard (ABNT NBR 15.401). This hotel has been operating for more than 20 years in the historic diamond town of Lençois in the Chapada Diamantina, one of Brazil´s top outdoor adventure destinations, in the heart of the State of

The hotel is known for its charm and hospitality and its attention to its socio-environmental responsibilities. It has been part of the Roteiros de Charme, an independent hotel network that has an environmental code of conduct, since 2003. The Chapada Diamantina (Diamond Tablelands) forms the northern part of the ancient Espinhaço mountain range, which runs all the way to Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais. The area combines breathtaking scenery with high biodiversity of plants, including showy orchids and bromeliads. The Discover.Travel Group’s Eco-Travel Packages include tours with English-speaking guides to the highlights of these natural attractions, such as Brazil’s second-highest waterfall Cachoeira da Fumaça, or the Poço Encantado, a dark blue lake within a cave hit by three single rays of sunlight at a certain hour of the day, creating a scenery of incredible beauty and mystery. The Brazilian Sustainable Tourism Standard is one of the results of the Brazil Sustainable Tourism Program, coordinated by the Instituto de Hospitalidade and financed by IADB and the Brazilian Government. Apart from developing the standard and incorporating it into Brazil’s official system, the Program (called PCTS/Bem Receber in Brazil) created best practice manuals and offered extensive training programs for accommodations by destination. During the month of June, the São João Festival gives Intelligent Leisure Solutions and the Discover.Travel Group’s Eco-Packages to the Chapada Diamantina an additional attraction. This festival is celebrated throughout the state of Bahia, Brazil, with bonfires, fireworks, Forró music and square dancing as well as copious amounts of liquors and local delicacies. Lençois is one of the towns where the São João Festival is most traditionally celebrated with Forró music and 3-person bands called trios, typical of the Brazilian Northeast. Local groups present their “Quadrilha” Dance Shows which tell traditional stories in a comical way. During this month, the Discover.Travel Group’s special Sao Joao travel packages give travelers the opportunity to have a travel experience with a unique insight into Northeast Brazilian culture and customs, while exploring the natural beauties of this area and enjoying the charming and environmentally sustainable hotel Canto das Aguas.
