About this book

Nature tourism can have many benefits for local and regional economies, but unfortunately if not managed properly it can destroy the very attractions that draw people. By focusing on case studies in Belize, Costa Rica, Dominica, Ecuador, and Mexico, which see about 5.6 million visitors a year, the author analyzes information and opinions from country officials, park managers and tourists, and data from studies of effects on the natural areas.
