Top 10 ethical destinations of the developing world revealed


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.

"There’s no doubt that worldwide interest in mindful, responsible travel is growing – not only among travelers, but within the countries that host us," says Jeff Greenwald, executive director of Ethical Traveler and co-author of the report.

"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.
