Although the concept of responsible tourism is linked to the conservation of the environment, in a broader sense it is not only a question of preserving the natural heritage of a country or a city, but also its cultural and social wealth. We can all contribute to the endogenous development and sustainable tourism in our country. Development is endogenous when it is born from within, from every home and community, from the depths of every citizen or citizen. In this sense, responsible tourism is that tourism that promotes social equity, environmental balance, economic growth and human development, preserving the quality of life of present and future generations. It is built in the community itself, preserving its historical, cultural, socio-economic and environmental values. Tourism is a source of well-being for all: an opportunity because it contributes to generate new sources of employment, to recognize, value and show the world the diversity of our tourist attractions, the richness of our heritage and the warmth of our people. It promotes cultural exchange through the encounter. It promotes integration through participation.
