An EcoGeek Vacation

monkeybay.jpg“What makes this a choice vacation spot for an EcoGeek is the fact that not only is it an environmentalist paradise, it is also full of neat technology, both advanced and old fashioned,” Christopher Phelon writes about Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, in Belize. The place is off the grid, with windmills and solar panels for power, composting toilets, local materials used in the buildings, and rain catchments to provide clean water.

Monkey Bay offers a range of options for travellers — overnight stays, ecology field courses, individual internships and volunteer programs, plus village homestays and community-service projects.
