Ecotourism is the result of increasing interest amongst consumers in developed countries in exploring the natural world as an alternative to more conventional holidays, along with a desire to reduce the environmental and cultural impact of their activities. It is, therefore, a relatively new sector of the tourism industry. This book is unique in defining, describing and analysing ecotourism in the less developed countries and its effects, in all parts of the world. The first three chapters set the broader industry context and geographical scope of the book. This is followed by country case studies on Costa Rica, Kenya, Nepal and Thailand and a chapter on the Caribbean and South Pacific. In the final chapter, the common themes and patterns which emerge are discussed with regard to strategies for future developments. This book is essential reading for lecturers, advanced students and researchers in tourism and for those actively involved in ecotourism in less developed countries. It will also be valuable to other tourism industry staff, geographers, development economists and government and regional policy makers.
