Ecuador is a great country to do ecotourism because it has so much to offer in terms of nature. Let’s think about this, once it’s safe to travel again, nature travel will probably be a big favorite because people will want to be in open spaces for two reasons: one is to maintain the physical distance that we need to keep from each other as a bio-security measure, and the other is to enjoy the outdoors after a long period of quarantine.
In Ecuador, there are several options for doing ecotourism and at the same time protect the wildlife and support local communities. For example visiting the community of San Clemente in the Imbabura province, located in the heart of the Andes it’s a great option.
In a future time, I will be sharing some tips on how to travel in an eco-friendly way, so stay tuned for more 😉 In the mean time I’d love if you could share your thoughts about this topic. How do you feel about ecotourism in developing countries?
