It’s old news that the more we travel by plane, the bigger our carbon footprint gets. If you’re concerned about the environment but you don’t think you can ignore your wanderlust, there’s really no need for you to worry. You can have the best of both worlds by choosing a “green” vacation. Ecotourism is getting to be more and more popular these days, what with people becoming more and more aware of their environment.

You might want to do your part as well. And if you think that you’re sacrificing too much by choosing to trod down the unbeaten path, think again. According to Ayako Ezaki of the International Ecotourism Society, by traveling “green”, you not only minimize travel’s negative effects but maximize its benefits as well.

A lot of people thought that visiting Aspen, Paris, New York, Napa, and Hawaii meant that you’d have to bring a lot of money. Most of them spend their whole lives saving up for that one trip. Spending too much on a single trip, though, isn’t very practical. Neither is it a smart choice, because you can save as much as half of the peak season cost if you only know when to book your trip.

Sometimes, you don’t even have to time it during the off-season. A lot of people wait for the rates to take a dip during the high season (airplane companies do hold promos) before they purchase their tickets. These discounts range from 20% to a spectacular 50%, so you should definitely keep your eyes peeled.

Winter can be a great time to go away on holiday, especially if you are interested in winter sports, or are on a tight budget. You can get some great deals at top hotels and resorts during this time, as the ‘high’ season is over and many places reduce their rates and offer incentives to keep their business topped up over the winter.

If you like it hot, then there are still plenty of sunny destinations to escape to when the dreariness of the wet, cold weather of winter is getting you down. The Caribbean is a wonderful destination in the winter, the perfect tropical getaway, and if you want to escape the crowds then Anguilla is a lovely little island, with some exclusive luxury hotels and villas with fine dining restaurants. Dominica is also a wonderful island to visit in the Caribbean, a little cheaper than some of the more popular and more exclusive places, and has some dramatic and stunning landscapes such as green rainforests and thundering waterfalls.
