What do we mean by eco tourisim ?

What do we mean by Eco tourists?
People whos trravel helps improve the eccology of the place they visit and increases its sustainability/
The travel its self is eccollogical for example we travel by wind power, boat sailing across the globe ? That would be very eco friendly
Or may be by air ship? though I know of few air ships let alone international ones!
The hotels we stay in are green eco friendly and recycle all their waste products and do not advesley effect the enviroment in which they are?
We should be insisting that all the hotels in the world do that any way!

Is it hard to be an eco tourist when the expectaion of the host population is that yiou are wealthy and comming from a society they see as the first world and what they aspire to when in effect you as the eco tourist are trying to get back to the healtheir and more basic enviroment they the host nation have as their norm.
As an Eco Toiurist you should eat the food and adopt the customes of the host nation you are visiting.
Yet in effect we go to the place we are visiting and expect and often get. The hair drier, the air conditioning, the car to hire, the western menu, in fact a home from home in a tropical rain forest, palm beach, game park or desert setting.
So it remains to be seen if tourisim can ever be ecological.
It is good to know some people are trying though and may be things will change in time so lets hope we have time?
