Ecotourism - Business Opportunities

Vision and Policy

Ecotourism is “environmentally responsible travel and visitation to relatively undisturbed natural areas, in order to enjoy and appreciate nature (and any accompanying cultural features — both past and present) that promotes conservation, has low visitor impact, and provides for beneficially active socio-economic involvement of local populations. (IUCN 2016)”.

Suriname embraces this definition and will set out policies for a prosperus ecotourism industry to grow.

Current State of Tourism in Suriname

Suriname only has a few hotels, resorts, agents, operators and a lot of undisturbed natural areas.

So as long as your a sensible and sustainable as entrepreneur, you are invited to startup a ecotourism business in Surimame.

Business Opportunities in Ecotourism and Hospitality

If we look at business opportunities we can mention things like: electric buses and taxi's, expo van flora and fauna, indepth day trails for a single animal or plant, a blue water lake, hotels and eco-resorts.

We also look forward to startups developing biodegradable bags, cups and other items. In this way we can have many tourist in our nature, but keep the nature clean.
