What is the Eco Lodge?

At a time when it is so important to take care of our surroundings, some people choose a more environmentally friendly holiday instead of hitting a big city or vacation hotspots. Often referred to as "ecotourism" or "responsible tourism", these strikes provide an incredible experience that does not affect the environment or the cultural environment.

An "ecolodge" is a product of this new way of thinking. They are often luxurious and comfortable habitats that reflect the design and heritage of indigenous cultures, which are carefully preserved among native plant life. In addition, local products will be collected and used for sustainable and / or reusable materials, and energy needs will be met in an environmentally friendly way. Meals in these lodges will be purchased locally to support local farmers and people, and there will be opportunities for interaction with local communities.

Many ecolodge specializes in adventure travel and have worked closely with the local community, including numerous waterfalls, mountain climbing, backpacking, tree climbing and river expeditions. Many will even perform activities based on history or education, giving them a chance to learn about local history and nature.

Thanks to the efforts of organizations such as the International Ecotourism Association (TIES), ecology has grown worldwide, including Australia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru and Panama. All of this is a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature, even if you are on vacation as a responsible traveler.
