Ecotourism in the Philippines

We've now set up a page promoting ecotourism in the Philippines.

Ecotourism is a form of sustainable tourism where economic benefits are fostered and pursued for both the enrichment of local communities, and the satisfaction of visitors.

It could be argued that pretty much all of the Philippines can be considered Ecotourism destinations, such is the diversity of both the country and the activities it has to offer, plus the importance of tourism to local communities.

The province of Batanes is one new area we're promoting. It's a fabled land of stunning landscapes, quite distinct from other Philippine provinces due to the steep cliffs, rolling hills, deep canyons and boulder-lined shores. These natural characteristics make Batanes a very exciting place to visit, and a place to be at one with nature.
