Urban Travelers Go to the Beach: Regional Effects of Domestic Tourism in Colombia


  • This chapter focuses on the role played by domestic tourism as a mechanism of interregional transfers of income. In Colombia, domestic tourism flows follow a pattern of origin in the central regions and destination in the periphery. In this sense, this chapter aims to analyze the regional impacts of the consumption patterns of expenditures by Colombian tourists, focusing on the Caribe region, using the interregional input–output model together with data from the Internal Tourism Expenditure Survey (EGIT) 2014–2015. The exercises developed in this chapter capture the contribution of domestic tourism to inclusive economic growth in terms of socioeconomic characteristics of jobs and income generation, both directly and indirectly.
