Developed by Ron Mader in 1994 as a reporter's notebook, Planeta.com pioneers online reporting on ecotourism and conscious 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 locals and visitors.

Our award-winning 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.

Comments and questions about 'Open Journalism' are welcome on Ron's blog.
