EMBLEMATIC FOODS AND TOURISM: THE LINK BETWEEN THE BOLA CHEESE FROM OCOSINGO AND THE REGIONAL TOURISM OFFER

Abstrac


The links between the Bola cheese from Ocosingo and the tourism offer in the San Cristobal de las Casas–Palenque corridor are analyzed. Through a mixed and multidisciplinary study, the spatial, economic, social and cultural relationships that influence processes of valuation and revaluation of emblematic foods as touristic capital are discussed. The data were obtained in 2013; results show the existence of a singular food product, associated to a territory with low tourism rating, which implies the need to link resources, spaces and people. It is concluded that the opportunity to suggest valuation strategies for the cheese is related to the exploitation of the regional touristic influx, which implies processes of dissemination, communication and reinterpretation of the agrifood patrimony within the regional tourism offer.

Palabras clave: agrifood patrimony, touristic product, artisanal cheeses, valuation.
