Hablamos de nuestro proyecto, sus objetivos y los resultados esperados sobre el turismo responsable. Luego , compartimos ideas sobre este concepto , el turismo lento (relacionado con el concepto del movimiento internacional Slow Food), nuestra experiencia de la cultura maya aquí en la península de Yucatán, nuestro punto de visto y perspectiva sobre México y sus potencialidades turísticas. Fue muy interesante compartir esto con todos estos futuros proveedores de turismo aquí en la península, especialmente en este momento en que el Sur del estado de Quintana Roo se trata de promover intencionalmente la zona como un destino alternativo al turismo de masa.

Parece difícil conciliar el desarrollo económico a través del turismo y la preservación del medio ambiente como del patrimonio cultural. Pero vale realmente la pena para un desarrollo común y compartido de la zona, como lo de las generaciones futuras. Lire la suite

Compartir nuestra experiencia del « Slow Turismo »

Thanks to the kind invitation of Pr. Javier Hirose, On the Heritage Route stopped for a while in the beautiful town of Valladolid, Yucatan, México. We shared, during almost 2 hours, our unique experience of México and of « slow tourism » with students in BSc of « tourism development ».

With the bicycles!

We talked about our project, its goals and expected results about responsible tourism. Then, we shared ideas about this concept, the slow tourism, our experience of the Mayan culture here in the peninsula of Yucatan, our feeling about México and its touristic potentials. It was very interesting to share with all these future tourism providers here in the peninsula, also to share ideas with members of the Mayan community living here close to Valladolid. Its sounds difficult for them to conciliate economic development through tourism and preservation of their Mayan culture and traditions. Also, they could be attracted to move to the Mayan Riviera, with its model of mass tourism, where money seems to be drowned faster and more easily. From our point fo view, it is really worst preserving and recovering the impressive cultural and natural heritage of Mayas that is still alive, for themselves and their community members, but also for « adventurous » tourists like we are Miguel and I. But that is easier to say it than doing it. Lire la suite
