In alphabetical order, Ethical Traveler's 2013 list includes: Barbados, Cape Verde, Costa Rica*, Ghana, Latvia*, Lithuania, Mauritius*, Palau*, Samoa, and Uruguay* (countries followed by * were already in the 2012 list).

The association, headquartered in Berkeley, California, publishes a list each year of the most ethical practices in hundreds of developing countries.

Ethical Traveler's choices are based on countries being at the forefront of "promoting human rights, safeguarding the environment and supporting civil society, while creating a sustainable community-based tourism industry".

For the "open-minded traveler"

This year, the association has also concocted a list of "Destinations of Interest" for the coming year, for "broad-minded travellers" seeking to explore countries that do not yet have the "ethical" label but are undergoing major political and social changes. The three countries to follow are Burma, Cuba and Namibia.
