Ethics of Travel.

A Code of Ethics for Travelers

………………from the North American Coordinating Center for Responsible Tourism

Travel in spirit of humility – desire to learn. Be aware.

Listen and observe.

Different time concepts and tought patterns.

Instead of the beach, discover another way of life.

Local customs.

Cultivate habit of asking questions instead of knowing it all.

You’re only one of many visitors so don’t expect privileges.

Volunteer your help, if appropriate and you won’t be a burden on the community.

If you are trying to replicate life at home, why travel?

When you shop from producers and artisans, remember the work that goes into handmade items.

Don’t make promises you can’t keep (such as e-mailing, sending packages, returning, etc)

Spend time reflecting on the experience.
