Travel Shows: Ecoluxe is a new show on the Travel Channel that seeks to show how you don't have to be a backpacking hippie to have an environmentally responsible vacation; you can just as easily make it luxurious.
Hosted by Jayms Ramirez, an avid traveler and freelance photographer, the show explores the globe with an eye on sustainable travel and tourism.
There is no need to fear the great outdoors as Jayms introduces audiences to a new generation of green travel that leaves no human or ecological need untended. A resort in the Costa Rican rain forest has a spa but no electricity, in Australia the hotel room is a tree house and in Mozambique the lights and the stove are solar-powered!
In every episode, Jayms explores the world's latest luxury eco-lodges: safe havens where you can stay under the stars without missing out on any amenities. In North America, Jayms shows how to go camping in five-star style at the Costanoa Coastal Lodge and Camp, which offers heated tents and some of the best food and wine in the country.
Instead of staying in the tourist geared and ecologically unfriendly luxury hotels of Asia, soak up some local culture with Jayms while he explores luxury eco-friendly resorts of Bali, Fiji and more. He not only shows you where to stay but how to help and explore the natural world.
Along the way, Jayms takes pictures of the local scenery and wildlife as well as provides tips to make your next adventure luxurious and eco-friendly.
