In our social programs we support children with few resources and try to give them unique outdoor experiences. We believe that our outdoor activities teach values that our society needs, such as: trust, respect, solidarity, happiness, motivation, empathy. Our healthy working environment and our motivated and committed team makes up the key to our success.

Latitud 90 believes that travel is a learning experience which transforms people. This is why each of their programs has been developed with the aim of revealing places, people and history in the most profound and comfortable way, always focusing on preserving the environment and creating a rewarding social setting.
