It’s Earth Day, and to celebrate we’d like to highlight 5 top eco-tourism destinations. Obtaining a passport is the first step to visiting one of these earth-friendly hotels or resorts:
Avalon Coastal Retreat, Australia
This eco-resort is located along the coast of Great Oyster Bay in Tasmania. Attractions include seabirds, whales, dolphins, penguins, and of course, Tasmanian devils.
Tenuta di Spannocchia is located in the Italian countryside, near Siena. Rent a farmhouse or a room in the bed and breakfast, which is located in a renovated castle. Spannocchia is a working organic farm, and you can purchase farm-raised meat, vegetables and honey for your meals. Cooking classes, hiking trails and a swimming pool are also available.
Punta Islita, Costa Rica
This gorgeous hotel is located on a gorgeous Costa Rican beach. Here, sustainable practices combine with luxurious accommodations and activities like zooming through the rainforest canopy on a zip line, hiking, swimming and horseback riding. There’s also a day spa, should you feel like you need a little extra pampering.
This eco-resort is located in Mexico, near the Mayan ruins of Tulum. It is powered by wind and solar energy and employs rainwater collection techniques to conserve water.
Tiamo Resort, Bahamas
This sustainably-built resort is located along a spectacular beachfront and offers sailing, snorkeling and nature tours.
All of these destinations are worthy of inclusion on any green traveler’s life list. Obtaining a passport is a must to visit any of them, however.
If you don’t have a valid passport at the moment, you can expect to wait at least 6 weeks for your passport application to be processed. If you choose the government’s expedited service, you can cut the wait time down to about 3 weeks. But what if you need a passport sooner than that?
