Our association members started out under the San Pedro Tour Guide Association as a group of tour shop owners dedicated to expanding tourism in San Pedro. As the industry grew, tour operators became concerned about the number of private entities using the natural aquatic attractions for profit and how this would affect the future of tourism on the island. In 2016 the tour operators collectively decided that they needed an exemplary body to implement regulations on how tourism can be carried out more efficiently for all those who wished to benefit from it. This led to the birth of the San Pedro Tour Operators Association which started with seven board members, two associate members and is seeing a progressive growth in numbers as our mission spreads throughout and beyond San Pedro.
