Resumen

ORTIZ-B., Lilia et al. Perception of local communities on the sociocultural impacts of rural tourism. Case of Bellavista, El Oro, Ecuador. Rev. interam. ambient. tur. [online]. 2017, vol.13, n.1, pp.15-27. ISSN 0717-6651.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-235X2017000100015.

This article presents a study on the community perception of tourism and its sociocultural impact from the point of view of the inhabitants of the coastal communes of the Bellavista Parish and areas bordering the La Tembladera wetland, a protected area with a tourist high potential. The references analyzed discuss the sociocultural impact involved in tourist development, interaction and influences between rural communities and tourism. The records obtained were highly reliable according to the reliability analysis (Cronbach’s α=0.992). Within the analysis, the component that presented the most interactive relationships had to do with the personal safety of the residents, who said that this is not affected by the flow of visitors during the local tourist seasons. The analysis of the sociocultural impact of tourism shows us that this can be related to the perception that the residents of rural communities of Bellavista Parish have.

Palabras clave : Community perception; tourism; sociocultural impact; personal safety; rural communities.
