Connecting Travelers with Inspiring Ecotourism Initiatives
The ecoDestinations program features various destinations and themes to highlight best practice examples of ecotourism, inspiring project stories, responsible travel tips, and volunteer opportunities. These stories and information will be posted on TIES website, blog, and social media channels. We believe all destinations have innovative and inspiring ecotourism stories to share with the world, and we want you to tell your stories through ecoDestinations.
If you represent a destination management organization or local, national or regional association, and would like to nominate your destination as a future ecoDestination, please review information on the sponsorship opportunity below, and contact us at: ecodestinations[at]ecotourism.org for more information.

Featured Destination Selection Criteria
We seek to promote a balanced global representation of destinations. In addition, by featuring selected destinations in ecoDestinations, we hope to provide positive impacts for the environment, economy and local communities. When selecting featured destinations, TIES gives priority to those where there are current local, national or regional ecotourism association members, and those that offer opportunities to further fulfill TIES mission.
The following are some examples of the attributes we look for when selecting a destination to feature:
- Commitment to the principles of ecotourism.
- Capacity to attract national and international visitors.
- Diverse range of activities.
- Opportunity to promote TIES through the local, state and national media.
- Involvement of the local community, industry, and government.
