Abstract | Full Text

This paper aims to propose a methodological approach based on the theory of the commons and the complex socio-ecological systems, which is allowing the analysis of community-based tourism using their natural resources collectively. Tourism is increasingly greater presence in rural areas and although many tourism projects are improvised and poorly organized action, there are cases where it has established with some success. To get it, many times the self-governance that rural communities have collectively developed around natural resources could be a key factor. This document is intended as a methodological framework that aims to facilitate analysis of the factors that determine why certain communities achieve collective self-manage their natural resources in tourism, while others fail or stagnate.
