The “Information Age” ushered in a paradigm shift in travel and tourism, introducing experienced-filled vacations that go beyond the mere pleasure of the body to the fulfilment, or satisfaction of the mind. Today’s traveler seeks to engage travel as a learning experience, one that broadens the horizon beyond your natural habitat and takes you to foreign locals where you learn about other cultures, broaden your scope of history, and most especially connect with nature. Ecotourism is many things to many different people. But we can all agree that ecotourism focuses on traveling to natural environments with a mission to learn about and, hopefully help protect those environments. So weather you opt for a rustic stay at eco-friendly resorts, go “glamping” (glamorous or high-end camping), or downright backpack with tents in tow, eco-travel (ecotourism) is a fast growing segment of the global tourism and provides positive contributions to the environmental, social, cultural and economic well-being of destinations and local communities you visit.
