Ecotourism is a strategy that guarantees the sustainability of the earth's natural resources and promotes local people's economic development while maintaining and safeguarding their social and cultural integrity. However, the activities may not be suitable for sustainable environmental conditions. Therefore, activity selection is important in tourism management. In this paper, fuzzy linguistics Prolog is used to match ecotourism activities and suitable regions. Bousi similar to Prolog is generated from classic fuzzy prolog that allows to operate with both fuzzy linguistic and linguistic tools to guide the Prolog structures into programming model phrases that can be very useful to the linguistic resources.
