    Ecotourism is a relatively new phenomenon. The International Eco-tourism
    Society defined the term in 1991 as "responsible travel to natural areas that
    conserves the environment and sustains the well being of local people."

    Well-planned ecotourism has proven to be one of the most effective tools for
    long-term conservation of biodiversity. The United Nations Environment Program
    (UNEP) suggests three basic principles of an ecotourism project: It conserves
    biodiversity, promotes sustainable resource use, and shares the benefits with
    local communities.

    To better address the guidelines and certification of ecotourism, UNEP and the
    World Tourism Organization declared 2002 the International Year of Ecotourism. A
    World Ecotourism Summit held in Montreal, Quebec, in May 2002 was attended by
    hundreds of travel industry professionals.

    The nonprofit organization Rainforest Alliance is also investigating the possibility
    of establishing an international accreditation body for sustainable tourism
    certification. As an example, Rainforest Alliance and an Ecuadorian environmental
    group have created a "Smartvoyager" certification program that sets the

We promote a Responsible Tourism


Ecoportal Venezuela is conscious that any kind of tourism has a negative impact over the environment and over local cultures and people. For this reason, Ecoportal Venezuela promotes a Responsible Tourism that is understood as an enviromental atitude and a social responsibility shared by all the EcoTravellers and EcoEntrepreneurs involved in EcoTourism.

For this reason, we started our Tourism- Watch Campaign where we involve touristic enterprises to follow an ethics code that respects certain enviromental and social standards that will help promote the so called "Responsible Tourism". On the other hand, we would like to share with all the Ecotravellers information that will make them active participants of this new culture.

Ecoportal Venezuela has allied with diverse international organisations to bring a series of articles that will help you be a real Responsible Ecotraveller.
