Travel With Purpose: Destinations You Can Feel Good About Visiting


Traveling can be one of the best experiences a person can have. Exploring a new city, country, or culture can be both exciting and life changing, yet we often don’t stop to consider the ecological impact of our travels. In the 1950s, the world experienced over 25 million annual tourists (i.e., overnight visitors). By 2015, according to the Center for Responsible Travel, that number increased to nearly 1.2 billion---contributing $7.2 trillion to the world’s GDP. Some countries, though, are working towards making their cities and tourist-friendly hot spots as sustainable as possible. For travelers with a desire to do good, these five destinations around the world will speak to your eco-friendly heart.

Costa Rica remains one of the top places for ecotourism within Latin America--and for good reason. The country began making efforts towards sustainability long before it became a trend and it continues to remain a top global sustainable-travel icon. Whether you want a relax on the black sand beaches or take an adventure ride through the lush cloud forests and jungles rich with exotic flora and fauna, Costa Rica is an ideal place for travelers that want to experience a little bit of everything on their trip.
