Ecological and rural accommodation, craft groups, tourism trails and tours, among others, may apply for certification for the quality and sustainable tourism seal.

It is not expected that each member meets the standards 100%, but a minimum is required to obtain basic certification, besides being committed to improving quality and sustainability with the support of CDCT technical units.
