Top 10 Ethical Destinations 2015 vs 2016

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Cape VerdeCalifornia-based nonprofit Ethical Traveler announced the list of the 10 most ethical destinations in the developing world for 2016. Each country is reviewed for its performance in the areas of human rights, social welfare, animal welfare and environmental protection. That’s not all; a winning country also must have plenty of appeal as a travel destination. We have found our news last year and compared results with this year.

The winners are in alphabetical order (NOT in order of merit)

2015 2016
Cape Verde Cabo Verde
Chile Dominica
Dominica Grenada
Lithuania Micronesia (Federated States)
Mauritius Mongolia
Palau Panama
Samoa Samoa
Tonga Tonga
Uruguay Tuvalu
Vanuatu Uruguay 

* Cape Verde or Cabo Verde as in Portuguese – same place

Chile, Lithuania, Mauritius, Palau, Vanuatu couldn’t enter the Top 10 list in 2016.

Meanwhile, new comers to the 2016 list are: Grenada, Micronesia, Mongolia, Panama, and Tuvalu.

"While we acknowledge that no country is perfect," says co-founder and travel author Jeff Greenwald, "we honor those that strive to build a better, more sustainable society. Their neighbors can learn and benefit from their example―and so can we."
