Summer says vacation like no other season, and if you are planning your next vacation might I suggest planning an eco-vacation. My friends at Ideal Bite think eco-tourism is so great that they wanted me to share a few tips with you. So much so that they decided to sponsor this post.
Taking an eco-adventure will not only take you off the beaten path, ensuring that your trip is unique, but it will also enrich the local environment as well as benefit the people of your destination. This way you can put your tourism dough where your heart is by supporting sustainability and local economies. If you are not a camper, that doesn't mean you can't vacation green. There are a variety of boutique green hotels just waiting for you.
Ideal Bite has created a reference list to help you plan your ideal eco-adventure vacation. My favorite idea from the list is the Relief Riders International, a guided horseback trip where you help the Red Cross by distributing books to kids along your route. Books, horses and an exotic clime - what more could you want out of a vacation?
I am curious if any of you have gone on an eco-adventure? If you have, I'd love to hear about it. Share some details in the comments section below.
