Sustainable travel continues to become more and more of a concern for travelers. If you’re looking to visit a destination this year where sustainable travel choices are easier than ever, travel advisors at Jacada Travel have a few suggestions.


Here are some of their top destinations for sustainable travel in 2023:


Costa Rica

A destination long known for its nature tourism, Costa Rica offers plenty of eco-friendly resort options. No matter where you stay, though, you’ll likely benefit from the country’s overall commitment to sustainable power sources.



See the lush biodiversity for yourself when you visit conservation areas in Borneo. Just like Costa Rica, this destination is a must-see for nature lovers, but it’s a little less popular than Costa Rica, which may appeal to travelers always ahead of the next trend.


Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands

Also a richly diverse destination with lots to love in the great outdoors, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands are growing in popularity. Be some of the first of your traveling friends to see this undeniably unique corner of the world, after you fly into the world’s first sustainable airport.



Bhutan as a whole is carbon-negative, and carefully monitors its tourism industry with visitor restrictions and daily fees. You’ll find luxury and sustainability converge here, especially if you book a stay at one of the country’s Six Senses properties.
