Resumen

DELGADO CAMPUZANO, Diana et al. Diagnosis of the tourist potential for the design of ecotourism trails. The Case of the Cerro Blanco Protected Forest, Guayas, Ecuador. Rev. interam. ambient. tur. [online]. 2017, vol.13, n.1, pp.28-43. ISSN 0717-6651.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-235X2017000100028.

The main objective of the Cerro Blanco Protected Forest (BPCB in Spanish) is “To protect and rehabilitate a nationally important representative sample of the tropical dry forest region, promoting public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment so as not to destroy it and to maintain it for present and future generations, both Ecuadorian as well as international visitors” (Horstman, 1998). In order to analyze the sustainability of the Outdoor Recreation Area of the BPCB, it is necessary to understand the diagnosis of the different elements that comprise the landscape, such as the climate conditions, the characteristics of the terrain, soil potential, vegetation structure and the fauna. This analysis makes it possible to identify the processes or changes that can alter the functioning of an environmental system at a certain time. The implementation of the design of the new trails for the BPCB involves preparing all those accessories or constructions needed for their proper development. The ultimate aim is to assess alternatives to implement them in place, considering technical, environmental and tourist regulations.
