ADVENTOURS has been heavily involved in building professional associations (tour guides and
tour operators), a policy that has led to the future implementation of guidelines for tour guides and
tour operators through the
Best Practices Committee of the Puerto Rican Association of
Interpretation and Education, Inc. (
APIE).  In October, 2007, Occupational Standards for Outdoor
Nature Guides and Outdoor Adventure Kayak Guides where developed for the first time.
