  • Tourism and economic development: the impact of the pandemic

    • Authors: Arcadio A. Cerda
      Abstract: The pandemic, in addition to deaths, suffering and pain
      in people, has undoubtedly generated a significant impact
      in reducing the flow of people to places of recreation
      and tourism with the consequent impact on economic
      and social development both at the local level.
      and global, where many local economies had to reinvent
      themselves to survive, especially in those places where
      state aid arrived late or simply did not arrive.
      The appearance of vaccines, despite their possible side
      effects, some of which are still to be elucidated, allowed
      society to resume its traditional activities in the tourism
      sector, opening up the possibility of recovering some
      economic capacity, at least for those who were able to
      continue operating. . Since people have been restricted
      Tourism and economic development: the impact
      of the pandemic
      Turismo y desarrollo económico: el impacto de la pandemia
      for a long time, the demand for tourist and recreational activities has increased significantly, a situation that operators have been taking advantage of. Unfortunately, there has been an increase in prices in this sector higher than other sectors of the economy, some of these price  increases are derived from local situations, but also from the world economic situation where there are expectations of recession with high inflation.From the point of research, the situation described in the preceding paragraphs opens the opportunity to carry out studies aimed at measuring the impact of what is happening as well as proposing new development measures in the sector. Some of these aspects are treated in this issue of the Journal.

  • Destination image: validation of a measurement scale

    • Authors: Laura Marlhene Hernández García, Alejandro Delgado Cruz, Yanelli Daniela Palmas Castrejón
      Abstract: Image is a factor that directly influences the decision tovisit a destination. Nowadays, more and more destinations are emerging that have different characteristics, from the consolidated and massive sun and beach destinations. The objective is to validate an unconventional destination image measurement scale in the Mexican context. With the support of the scientific literature review, an instrument was designed and applied to 405 visitors from three destinations: Sultepec, Almoloya de Alquisiras and Texcaltitlán, municipalities belonging to the State of Mexico, Mexico. For data processing, the measurement and structural model was evaluated with the support of different tests of internal consistency, validity and structural equation modelling. The results show that the destination image is integrated by affective, cognitive and global components. In conclusion, the instrument in question showed highly satisfactory values to be considered reliable and valid.Keywords: Destiny image, affective image, cognitive image, global image, measurement scale.RESUMENLa imagen es un factor que influye directamente en la decisión
      de visita de un destino. Hoy en día, emergen cada vez más destinos que cuentan con características, diferentes a los destinos consolidados y masivos de sol y playa. El artículo tiene por objetivo validar una escala de medición de la imagen del destino no convencionales en el contexto mexicano. Con apoyo de la revisión de literatura científica, se diseñó un instrumento el cual se aplicó a 405 visitantes de tres destinos: Sultepec, Almoloya de Alquisiras y Texcaltitlán, municipios pertenecientes al Estado de México, México. Para el tratamiento de datos se evaluó el modelo de medida y estructural con apoyo de diferentes pruebas de consistencia interna, validez y modelación de ecuaciones estructurales. Los resultados muestran que la imagen del destino se integra por componentes afectivos, cognitivos y globales. En conclusión, el instrumento en cuestión evidenció valores altamente satisfactorios para considerarse confiable y válido. Palabras clave: Imagen del destino, imagen afectiva, imagen

  • The secrets of the “Forest”: Tourist images of Puerto Patriada
           (Argentine Patagonia)

    • Authors: Carolina Flavia Crespo
      Abstract: This article proposes debates –from an anthropological approach which combines fieldwork with the study of documents from state archives and other sources– about how images and secrecy practices interplay in the pleasure economy and attractiveness disseminated by the tourism device in Puerto Patriada, Chubut province –Argentine Patagonia. It examines the way in wich, through gaze framing and secrecy formulas consttructed and disseminated by tourist policies in Puerto Patriada, the contradictions of the capitalist system are recodified, new and old ways of understanding the term “natural” not only as a material fact but also a moral one are expressed, and pedagogies of ordering and intervention in the space, resources, and subjects are shaped according to this new model of development. Also, it will reflect upon how these “gazes” and their vanishing points were configured and redefined. Keywords: tourism, nature, secrecy practices, counter images, Argentine Patagonia. Los secretos delRESUMENEste trabajo se propone discutir -desde una aproximación antropológica que combina trabajo de campo con relevamiento de documentos de archivos estatales y otras fuentes–cómo interjuegan imágenes y prácticas de secrecía en la economía del placer y la atractividad propagada por el dispositivo turístico en Puerto Patriada, provincia de Chubut –Patagonia Argentina. Examina la forma en que mediante encuadres de la mirada y fórmulas de secrecías elaboradas y propagadas en las políticas turísticas en Puerto Patriada se recodifican las contradicciones del sistema capitalista, se plasman nuevas y viejas formas de comprender “lo natural” como un hecho no solo material sino también moral y se procuran conformar pedagogías de ordenamiento e intervención en el espacio, los recursos y los sujetosacordes con este nuevo modelo de desarrollo. Asimismo reflexiona sobre cómo se fueron configurando y redefiniendo esas “miradas” y sus puntos de fuga.Palabras Claves: turismo, naturaleza, prácticas de secrecía,contra-imágenes, Patagonia Argentina.Received: 2021-09-21 Accepted for publication: 2022-05-23 Published: 2022-06-30

           Guardalavaca Hotel in the post-covid-19 stage

    • Authors: Leirene Montero-López, Félix Díaz-Pompa, Beatriz Serrano-Leyva, Olga Lidia Ortiz-Pérez
      Abstract: This article investigates the perception of national tourists about the safety and security system of the Brisas Guardalavaca Hotel, according to their age and gender. A survey was used as the primary data collection method,
      where seven dimensions were analyzed with thirty-two indicators related to the safety of hotel staff, safety of services, safety in leisure and recreation activities, general cleanliness, room safety, medical assistance and safety equipment. The results of the study were obtained through descriptive statistics analysis and ANOVA using SPSS software. There is a high level of satisfaction among domestic clients with respect to hotel safety and security. The opinions of the surveyed clients in relation to the safety and security measures implemented differed in relation to their age ranges, and no differences were found between the opinions of the clients by sex. Finally, as a result of the pandemic, clients are more sensitive to the new environment of uncertainty. Compliance with safety protocols and progress in vaccination are success factors to ensure client satisfaction in the post pandemic stage.Keywords: security, safety, hotel, hotel, customers, postcovid-19, ANOVA, Covid-19.RESUMENEl presente artículo investiga la percepción de los turistas nacionales acerca del sistema de seguridad y protección del Hotel Brisas Guardalavaca, según las edades y género de los mismos.

Los resultados del estudio fueron obtenidos a través del análisis de estadística descriptiva y ANOVA empleando el software SPSS. Se percibe una alta satisfacción de los clientes nacionales respecto a la seguridad y protección en el hotel. Las opiniones de los clientes encuestados en relación a las medidas de seguridad y protección implementadas difieren en relación a los rangos de edades de estos, no encontrándose diferencias entre las opiniones de los clientes por sexo. Finalmente, a raíz de la pandemia, los clientes son más sensibles al nuevo entorno de incertidumbre. El cumplimiento de los protocolos de seguridad y el avance en la vacunación son factores de éxitos para asegurar satisfacción de los clientes en la etapa post-pandemia.Palabras clave: seguridad, protección, hotel, clientes,

  • The ecotourism system: a local approach. Practical case of Cuando Cubango
           provincy, Angola

    • Authors: José Eduardo Ezaquias
      Abstract: The objective of this article was to design a spatial circular system with a local approach to the management of ecotourism that contributes to the systematization and establishment of ecotourism networks, as a proposal to minimize theoretical-methodological and material deficiencies of existing systems in the desire to link and concretize the participation of the local community. It is a quali-quantitative and transversal research, where the
      different categories of the scientific method were used, such as: systemic-structural, analytical-synthetic and induction and deduction from an endogenous approach. The design of the proposal of the Circular Model of Ecotourism and the partial application on the Island of Leapeka, in Cuando Cubango, Angola, allowed the emergence of a new theoretical-methodological instrument, also spatial, for the management of ecotourism, which ecotourism policy makers, travel agencies, tour operators and local communities can strengthen and appropriate for the management of ecotourism activity with indicators for the local community.Keywords: System, Ecotourism, Management RESUMENEl objetivo de este artículo fue diseñar un sistema circular espacial con enfoque local para la gestión del ecoturismo que contribuya a la sistematización y estabelecimiento de redes ecoturísticas, como propuesta para minimizar carencias teórico- metodológicas y material de los sistemas existentes en el afán de vincular y concretar la participación de la comunidad local.

  • Ecotourism in Peru: Laguna de los Patos as a case study

    • Authors: Renzo Antonio Seminario-Córdova, Israel Barrutia Barreto, Zenayda Emilia Estrada Tuesta
      Abstract: Aviturismo or birdwatching tourism is part of an emerging subsector in the nature tourism industry. Although bird watching is established in Peru, it has been concentrated to a greater extent in conservation areas. However, the Piura region is also home to a great diversity of birds in areas that have not been declared protected, such as the “Laguna de los Patos” wetland located in the district of Querecotillo. The objective of this study is to investigate the potential of birdwatching that can occur in the "Laguna de los Patos" wetland, together with an update of the species. A non-experimental research work was carried out with field collection and bibliographic information. The results obtained allowed us to conclude that the wetland has a fairly high potential to develop bird tourism and contribute to the conservation of the area and the species, also benefiting the economy of the surrounding local populations.Keywords: birds, ecotourism, sustainability, tourismRESUMENEl aviturismo o turismo de observación de aves forma parte de un subsector emergente en la industria del turismo de naturaleza.

  • Tourism and its contribution to the local economy. Pastaza province case

    • Authors: Victor Hugo Del Corral Villarroel
      Abstract: Tourism is a very important aspect that each state must consider in order to offer its tourist resources to the rest of the world, although these resources are usually natural and are not commercial, so that tourists are interested in knowing them, this includes knowledge of the culture of each country and other aspects of the region. However, tourism is not only about offering the natural wonders of each country, rather it directly influences the economic factor of a region, this product of the participation of businesses that intervene to offer their products to tourists, helping in one way or another to the economy of a specific sector, so if a good management of tourism promotion is done, the local economy will benefit successfully. Based on this idea, countries have developed programs to promote their culture and tradition to the rest of the world. Ecuador has great attractions, the province of Pastaza is not left behind, which being located in the eastern region, has great natural attractions, also encouraging the local economy through tourism.
