To experience life.
The whole milieu of an eco lodge is life. Bird songs, night sounds, friendly chatter of other guests, tracking your day by the sun, healthy fresh food. Sleep so deep you’ll wonder how you’ll manage back in the city.
Compare that with big resorts that are so built up that nature has to squeeze its way in some how. Ecolodges are exact opposite. They blend into nature.
I suggest you read more about ecolodges on this page of the website.
I got hooked on eco lodges back in the 90’s after a visit to one in the Peruvian Amazon. If you’ve been to one, and liked it, you’ll know what I mean when I say hooked.
Check this video of me to get another idea of ecolodges.
But my mission is not to convert the people who visit big vacation resorts. I do want to help those people that have been searching for a more natural experience. I’ve visited a lot of ecolodges and will continue to do so and report on them. This website is a repository of information that comes from my own travels and from my many professional friends in the ecotourism world.
So, if you are planning a visit to an eco lodge, there are some tour ideas on this website, places to stay and articles you can use to help you. Getting to visit an eco lodge can be bit tricky since they are often not on regular tour routes. To get help, contact Flight Centre Independent where I work. No obligation.
Using Booking.com to Find Ecolodges
Please use the booking.com search boxes and links on this website as I use the affiliation to help finance the website. You can now find many ecolodges on booking.com but they are not called ecolodges. For example if you want to find good ecolodge in Peru or Costa Rica or Brazil, you can narrow the search by scrolling down the initial search result page and look for Property Types. Try filtering lodges. Or in Italy or Spain etc. try farmstays, villas, lodges, even country homes. These will remove all the hotels and show you more interesting results. Good luck but contact me if you would like some help.
You can also contact me on the contact page if you are an ecolodge owner and would like be featured in a tour or as a listing.
