I believe it was Kenya. As ecotourism has no major negative effects as such. Also, the spec requires stratergies for mass tourism but nothing is mentioned for ecotourism - only positive effects and sustainable development. Also, it was part (d) i believe which was all mass tourism

I did the galapagos islands, it was a tropical area so i believe that Kenya, Galapagos and Brazil were all fine to use

I wouldnt quite call Kenya Tropical, but it said how does it maintain an income whilst reduxing the negative effects. For example, 10/16 people are only aloowed on a small boat to the Galapogos islands, these bring money to the local economy whilst also reduce carbon emissions as its only a small boat

Our teachers told us that we had to do the mass tourism case study because ecotourism strategies isn't even on the spec but a lot of people have put Galapogas Islands. Questions fault really worded very weird and misleading.

Kenya is a country in the tropics - it is in the AQA textbook for "a case study in the tropics"

It couldn't have been an eco tourism as it asked for an established resort. Eco tourism resorts have only been around for a few years due to the increased awareness of global warming, climate change etc
