Ethical Traveler: The Ten Most Ethical Travel Destinations for 2016

photo of a wooded, tropical beach

As travelers, where we choose to put our footprints has economic, social and environmental impacts reaching far beyond our personal experience. Ethical Traveler believes that mindful travel offers many rewards. By “voting with our wings” – choosing our destinations well, and cultivating our roles as citizen diplomats – we promote international goodwill and help change the world for the better.

Every year, Ethical Traveler's team of researchers reviews the policies and practices of hundreds of nations in the developing world. Using dozens of metrics and in-depth investigation, they create a list of the planet’s 10 most ethical travel destinations. Check out the 2016 winners, learn why they won, and consider how you might choose to travel differently.

Ethical Traveler’s latest position papers evaluate swimming with dolphins and trekking with elephants. Their news section keeps you informed about earth’s most polluted city, and who is doing what about child labor.

You might also consider joining one of their 2016 Ethical journeys to Cuba or Lithuania!
