ECOTOURISM IN THE SIERRA NORTE, OAXACA: FROM COMMUNALITY TO SOLIDARY ECONOMY

Abstrac


The indigenous community ecotourism centers, which through practices of sharing, community organization and solidary economy generate employment alternatives for their population, make evident an evolution in the manners of productive organization with peasant roots. In this document, the emergence, permanence strategies and transformations that eleven ecotourism centers in Sierra Norte, Oaxaca, México, have undergone are analyzed, in addition to the role of the two ecotourism networks present in Sierra Norte, under the perspective of communality and solidary economy. The methodology consists of documentary information, participant information, semi-structured interviews with those in charge of the ecotourism centers, and network analysis to show the interaction with external actors. It is concluded that communality and solidary economy are essential; they can explain the dynamics of these ecotourism centers and that their development depends on the commitment of the community with the project.

Palabras clave: communality, solidary economy, ecotourism, networks and sustainability.
