ethicaltravelerHere’s Ethical Traveler’s 2013 list, in alphabetical order, of the most world’s ethical travel destinations:

Barbados, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Ghana, Latvia, Lithuania, Mauritius, Palau, Samoa and Uruguay.

While no country is perfect, those ten countries scored highest in three main areas: social welfare (measured by indicators such as child mortality rates, economic freedom and crime rates); environmental protection (measured by an academic index and share of protected areas); and human rights (which includes press and political freedoms, as well as gay rights).
