NEW YORK, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ — Conde Nast Traveler’s annual search to identify ecotourism’s creme de la creme combs every corner of the earth, from the steamy Amazon, to the parched Moroccan desert to frigid Antarctica, tracking down candidates that exemplify earth-friendly travel.

The result is travel the way consumers experience it – good and bad, with reporting that is fair and honest. Conde Nast Traveler has won 6 National Magazine Awards and is still the only travel publication to have won this highest honor in magazine publishing.
