In Ecotourism, the island of La Palma has been a pioneer. In the 1990s, with the appearance of rural tourism it began this commitment. A decade later, with the appearance of astro-tourism, it has been consolidated. Ecotourism options are well established in La Palma and the enjoyment of nature is guaranteed. Thus, La Palma is an excellent place to travel, to travel leisurely and to enjoy its spectacular nature. The island also known as “La Isla Bonita”, has incredible landscapes, imposing volcanoes, enchanted forests, a thousand kilometres of trails, transparent beaches and a dark sky full of stars.
The year 2020 has meant a change in the world view for the vast majority of people since the incidence of covid19 has made us rethink the way we live and travel. Some places have remained almost immune to this, such as the island of La Palma, where the number of covid cases has been the lowest in Europe.
In an era after coronavirus, La Palma is a safe and healthy destination. New ways of travelling are here, with longer stays, to places where avoiding crowds are possible and where work (teleworking) and travel can be combined. This is undoubtedly a change brought by covid health measures together with climate change, that will contribute to sustainable tourism. Carbon footprint will decrease with less customers, but with longer stays for each of them.
If you want to enjoy a nature destination away from mass tourism, come to La Isla Bonita.
