5 Sustainable Summer Destinations for Nurses

Eco-friendly travel focuses on how we interact with the environment and the destination. Some countries prioritise sustainability, which nurses can explore this summer. Here are six sustainable summer destinations that nurses can visit this season.

Costa-Rica

Costa Rica houses many protected areas with different wildlife species and plants. The country has a goal to become the world's first carbon-neutral country. Coffee is Costa Rica's largest export.

There are many eco-conscious hotels in Costa Rica. There are great restaurants that source ingredients from local farmers, too.

The Bahamas 

Several Bahamas properties are now taking proactive measures to protect the environment. Andros Island and Kamalame Cay encourage tourists to eat lionfish, an invasive species that prey on indigenous fish and disrupts the ecosystem. Some resorts are well-vetted to minimise pollution. Tiamo Resorts reserves all its human resources for locals to support the community. The Bahamas is a dream summer travel destination with great sustainability efforts.
