Action, Advocacy & Adventure
Who doesn't love traveling, seeing new places, and meeting new people? Traditional travel, however, has come at a cost to the earth. That's why environmentally-conscious travelers are turning to ecotourism.
Through ecotourism, travelers can have fun, help the earth, and learn ways they can positively impact the planet long after vacation is over.
Que es ecotourismo?
According to the International Ecotourism Society, ecotourism involves THREE main components:
1. Responsible travel to natural areas that conserve the environment.
2. Travel to areas that sustain the wellbeing of the local people.
3. Travel that involves interpretation and education.
Enjoy the Earth Without Damaging the Earth
The growing trend in ecotourism is proof that more people are aware of the environmental crisis facing the planet. And more people want to do something about it. That's a great thing!
A Walk on the Wild Side
You don't have to be an ecologist, a botanist, or any other 'ist' to go on a vacation that's a cleaner, greener option for the planet. And you don't have to go far. Plus, the idea of 'roughing it' during eco-vacations is a complete myth! In fact, most eco-vacations are luxurious getaways that visitors are anxious to repeat.
One of the amazing things about ecotourism is that you can take an eco-trip just about anywhere in the world, so if your schedule is full, check out some places that are practically in your own backyard. Eco-efforts are going on all around you, so consider day trips and staycation destinations that are close-by. You'll contribute to local sustainability efforts, learnt what people are doing to combat climate change near you, and find new ways to add your efforts to the mix.
On top of all that, you'll get a relaxing, luxury vacation that will soothe your soul and leave you with memories to last a lifetime. (That's WAY better than a trip to a crowded amusement park in the middle of summertime.)
