Resumen

SANDOVAL DUQUE, Jenny Alexandra. Economic impact on service companies of the “Tren del Hielo 2” tourist route, Ecuador. Rev. interam. ambient. tur. [online]. 2017, vol.13, n.1, pp.44-51. ISSN 0717-6651.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-235X2017000100044.

For many years the train has been the main communication channel in Ecuador. The train opened up a space for product marketing, it invigorated the economies and cultural exchange of the regions, and brought life to its surroundings, forming a set of experiences for both those who approached it and those who watched it go by. However, with 30 years of neglect, that progress slowly disappeared. The main objective of this investigation was to study the “Tren del Hielo 2” tourist route located in the center of Ecuador. The methodology included the application of a questionnaire to the tourists taking the route. The results show the impact that this tourist project has had on the economic domain since its implementation. The increased revenues obtained in the cities and the success of the service companies are worthy of note. In addition, the results emphasize the view of what the benefit has been by being part of the Tren Ecuador tourist project.

Palabras clave : “Tren del Hielo 2” tourist route; economic income; service companies.
