Who are Eco-tourists?

According to The International Ecotourism Society (1990), ecotourism is responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the wellbeing of local people. By choosing responsible travel, you can have the fabulous vacation that you’ve dreamed of, while ensuring that the money you spend at your destination is benefiting the environment and the local people.

There is a wide range of travelers, of all ages and interests.

As a matured traveller or eco-tourist, you protect nature as well as celebrate it at the same time. You participate in its conservation. Travelers who choose ecotourism should leave all attitudes behind and set out with an open mind to discover.
