Ecotourism is a tourist activity that takes place in nature with the main objective of preserving the balance with the environment without altering it.

It’s about appreciating nature and everything related to the culture of a place, promoting respect for the environment and the well-being of the visited population.

Currently, tourists are better informed when traveling, have access to much broader offers, and seek authenticity in their travel experiences. Nowadays, the trend is to be more demanding and careful when choosing a destination. Travelers look into everything related to accommodation, transportation, places to visit, and more.

Of course, when choosing a special place to rest, escape the noise, and pollution, and break the routine, they also want accommodation that provides good and new experiences.

If you are looking for a natural environment where you can do outdoor activities, connect with nature, and the charms of a magical place, it is essential to choose a good place to sleep and truly rest. This is where the big choice comes in: Camping or Glamping?

The camping model, although still a plan chosen by some, faces the growing trend of Glamping; since most tourists want something more. The modern adventurous traveler seeks a peaceful and natural place but with amenities and comfort. Natural no longer has to be synonymous with discomfort. This is where this type of tourism called Glamping comes in.

WHAT IS THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAMPING AND GLAMPING?

Glamping differs from camping in that it offers certain comforts such as a private bathroom, hot shower, a pleasant double bed, many have heating, air conditioning, and an equipped kitchen. Glamping accommodations have infrastructure created in the middle of nature, like a hotel. It’s a dream within the ecological tourism you want to experience.
