Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco): Geotourism

Geotourism in Rocky Point Mexico (Puerto Penasco)

Geotourism is one of those widely used, hard-to-pin-down phrases that often gets tossed in with other similar terms like ‘sustainability’ and ‘eco-friendly’ when people start describing the concept. defines geotourism as:

…the study of travel and tourism as an industry, as a human activity, and especially as a place-based experience. From a geographical point of view, tourism consists of the places of tourist origin (or tourist generating areas), tourist destinations (or places of tourism supply), and the relationship (connections) between origin and destination places, which includes transportation routes, business relationships, and traveler motivations.

Personally, I think I’ve always tied the concept into a broader sense of appreciating your surroundings – i.e. making sure that your visit helps keep it the place worth visiting again.
