Eco-Travel

Travel can and should do more than provide entertainment. Eco travel is the ultimate tool to protect the environment, preserve cultures, and benefit local communities. Travelers arrive at a destination with big dreams and leave with deeper understanding and respect. When done correctly, travel and tourism create sustainable jobs that support the local economy while protecting and enhancing natural areas. We choose ethical and sustainable standards when we travel, and it is our goal to help our readers do the same. This starts by looking for local guides who can provide authentic experiences. We select local vendors whenever possible to keep travel dollars in the community. Ethical travel isn’t a sacrifice. It’s a choice that may take a little extra research upfront, but will enhance your experience in ways you never imagined.
