The latest report by Ethical Traveler identifies the world’s 10 best ethical destinations in the developing world.
These destinations are best at protecting their natural environments, promoting responsible travel, and building a tourism industry which provides real benefits to local communities.
"Now is the perfect time for savvy travelers and well-intentioned governments to evolve together, each encouraging the other.“This is especially true in the developing world, where travel and tourism can be developed as lucrative, low-impact alternatives to forestry, mining, and the destruction of ocean habitats."
The best ethical travel destinations for 2010 are: Argentina, Belize, Chile, Ghana, Lithuania, Namibia, Poland, Seychelles, South Africa and Suriname.
"In drafting our report, we use scores of information sources — including publicly available data — to rate each country’s genuine commitment to environmental protection, social welfare and human rights," says Christy Hoover, co-author of the report.
