Carriers, hotel administrators and hotel receptionists should bear in mind that operators exploit the weaknesses of the tourism industry to violate the rights of children. They will refrain from offering, expressly or tacitly, plans or programs that include CSEC, taking measures to prevent their workers, dependents or intermediaries from committing a crime.

For "Code of Global Ethics for Tourism", the exploitation of human beings, in any form, violates the fundamental objectives of tourism, since it generates negative effects on the life of children in their development.
Adopting measures aimed at avoiding the provision of tourist services that include sexual contacts with children under 18 years, allows to strengthen the tourism sector and, consequently, the country image.
