Travelers visiting Barbados will see no shortage of natural wonders, but they will be hard-pressed to find opportunites to camp on the island. Eco-tourism opportunities, however, are widely available.
Many travelers associate the phrase "eco-tourism" with camping, and those travelers can find what they're looking for - camping is available, but is usually restricted to group travel. Vacationers interested in ecologically-oriented activities can explore areas of old forests and the island's bird sanctuary. Some areas of Barbaos most frequented by tourists have less to offer in the way of older forests and ecological splendor, but natural beauty abounds no matter where you decide to stay.
For those who don't plan to camp and still want to enjoy an eco-friendly getaway, they'll be pleased to learn that Barbados has several Green Globe Certified Hotels, and others which offer ecologically friendly activities and adventures. Many of the Green Globe Hotels are located in and around Christ Church and travelers often choose to enjoy nature's wonders in this area of Barbados. Other eco-activities include a Walking Week package, hosted by hotel Peach and Quiet.
Avid campers will want to vacation elsewhere if roughing it makes the top of their list, but Barbados has plenty to offer tourists interested in respecting and exploring nature.
