Ecotourism is travel to fragile, and usually protected areas that strive to be low impact and small scale. It helps educate the traveler; provides funds for conservation and generally benefits the economic development of local communities.
According to the definition and principles of ecotourism established by The International Ecotourism Society in 1990, ecotourism is "Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and empowers the well-being of the local people."
Orchid Bay is building such a community...from leaving 40% of the space "green" to utilizing solar and wind power, to creating jobs for some of the local people.
This month's Insider's Tour will explore some of the ways in which Orchid Bay is creating this community while remaining "eco-friendly." This concept is a major factor in creating this community in northern Belize...it's probably too late to get in on the April Tour...but the founders are hosting another one next month...so start thinking about it now.
