Ron Mader: Planeta.com is a labor of love, a handcrafted website started in 1994. My earnest interest in tourism as a means of transformation and social activism began in the late 1980s when I studied the origins of ecotourism in Mexico and Costa Rica. 'Planeta' by the way is the way to say the word 'planet' in Spanish -- my first attempt to embrace a multilingual world! We may not have a common language but we share a common ground. Planeta.com continues to be a thoughtful and fun exploration of the world in a conscientious manner. I embrace all sort of new trends that go beyond ecotourism, including relations with indigenous tourism, carrotmobs, slow travel and the local travel movement.
