What is Ecotourism?

John Muir practiced ecotourism, Theodore Roosevelt practiced ecotourism, and today many travelers are also practicing ecotourism. But what the heck is ecotourism?

Basically, ecotourism or “green travel” is nothing more than environmentally responsible travel. This includes such activities as hiking, birdwatching, photography, river rafting, and any form of travel that is not harmful, disturbing, or detrimental to the natural surroundings.

In recent years some governments and private organizations have proven that tourism and preservation of natural resources are not mutually exclusive and can in fact support each other. One such country is Costa Rica. Costa Rica has made it a national policy to preserve its natural resources and has benefited from it to the extent that ecotourism has become its second largest source of revenue, second only to coffee growing.

The California Native has always specialized in eco-friendly trips. When you join us to explore the wilds of the Costa Rican rainforest, photograph birds in Mexico’s Copper Canyon, or kayak through the cool, blue waters off California's Channel Islands, you can be sure to have a great time and at the same time know that your adventure is “eco-friendly.”
