According to the International Ecotourism Society Ecotourism is now defined as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education” (TIES, 2015).
Travel used to be thought of as family vacations during summer months, two week vacations from your 40 plus hours a week job or perhaps special occasions: honeymoon, anniversary, birthday. Travel was more of a vacation one took when they could or had the means. It was a well planned trip to famous cities with great hotels and lots to do but… Something is changing is the world of travel; welcome to a new era of ecotourism.
