This article presents data about the growing of ecotourism and the practice of adventure physical activities in the nature (AFAN) under the Brazilian and Spanish context. Using the academic production in the area, we will to try to identify the motives of the growing interest for such activities and its consequences to the human being and the nature. Ecotourism is one dimension of the tourism that is increasing rapidly by the consolidation of different types of AFAN. In this article, ecotourism means the ethical and political articulation between the dimensions of the environment, the social relations and the human subjectivity in order to develop natural spaces that will indicate a new relationship human-nature, not only by denomination, but via an interaction, for an endogenous development towards the autonomy of the population involved.
