Developed by Ron
Mader in 1994 as a reporter's notebook, Planeta.com
pioneers online reporting on ecotourism
travel around the globe.
We collaborate with friends to focus on local
travel (all travel is local!) around the world. Since 1994 we
have emphasized the need for
decentralizing communication by encouraging engagement
- active participation and reciprocity among our readers, including
site is geared toward ... everyone, the travelers, hosts and everyone
inbetween seeking practical suggestions in the realm of conscious
eco-friendly, people-friendly and place-friendly travel.
We embrace open
journalism, a collaborative approach to news. What would you
like to see here? How would you like to collaborate? How can we
financially profit from this approach?
Explore the site and if you get lost, consult the search
engine. The link is on the left side of every page.
and questions about 'Open Journalism' are welcome on Ron's blog.
