The biodiversity of the tropics and the cultural richness of Asia, Africa and South America are irresistible to the typical ecotourist. Other countries which are not usually associated with ecotourism are also jumping on the ecotourism bandwagon. Sri Lanka is closely following this trend. And why not? The country is an ideal destination for nature-based travel for the adventurous backpacker, for a group traveler, and for the whole family.
