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, ecolodge, nonprofit or eco-tour operator, and would like to nominate your destination as a future ecoDestination, please review information on the sponsorship opportunity below, and contact us at: for more information.
