I say that travel is not to escape life, but to experience life.
The whole milieu of an eco lodge is life. Bird songs, night sounds, friendly chatter of other guests who you feel a kinship with, healthy food (often gourmet, and always tasty). Sleep so deep you’ll wonder how you to 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.
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 me at Flight Centre Associates where I work. No obligation.
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.
