A Unique Story

Community Connection

Origins has been working closely with the Rural Commuty-based Tourism Network, which is managed and administered by 50 families (all small farmers) in 12 different communities in the Northwest of Argentina and the states of Misiones, Mendoza, Rio Negro and also Buenos Aires.
These communities have embraced a new way of doing tourism that enables the visitors to really appreciate their customs, identity, productive diversity, gastronomy and landscape in the context of a friendly relationship of mutual respect and care.

Culture

Origins also partners with communities on tourism experiences that help preserve local cultures and traditions. For example, they work with the Ocumazo community where people live from traditional agriculture methods of their 'grandparents' producing cereals, vegetables and prized fruits.
They also support eight native “Ocumaceñas” families that offer accommodation in their houses of adobe along with home cooking using products they grow (quinoa, potatoes, Andean and multicolored corn, tamales, etc.) and excursions surrounding area (by foot or horse).
