Ethical Travel

There was a time, around sixty, seventy years ago, when travel  took weeks, months, with little or no contact with loved ones.  Today technology allows us to reach our destination in a matter of hours and to be connected 24/7.  However this can distract us from the real meaning of travelling.

The real meaning of travel is to discover the unknown, to learn, to enrich our lives and to fulfill a dream.  

It does not matter how well we plan our trip, there are always surprises. We meet people who teach us and inspire us, this creates a ripple effect.

This is why every year, Ethical Traveler an all-volunteer, non-profit organization travels the world to review policies and practices of nations in the developing world that : 

Promote human rights
Preserve the environment
Support social welfare
Create a community based on tourism industry.

Ethical Traveler believes that travel offers many rewards, on a personal and global basis and where we  choose to travel has economic and political impact. By reviewing these policies and practices, Ethical Traveler selects the World's 10 Best Ethical Destinations.
