Module 2
• Get acquainted with public programs dedicated to tourism in Mexico, in order to
optimize its impact and detect possible opportunity areas in its design and application.
• Analyze the challenges, scope and achievements of several sustainable tourism
practices, in order to extract those susceptible of being either imitated or avoided in
future sustainable tourism projects.
• Characterize the consumers of alternative tourism and its suppliers, in order to
understand their profiles, coincidences, opportunities and new market segments.
Module 3
• Characterize cultural and nature tourism as the main branches of alternative tourism,
without disregarding the need for both of them to be sustainable.
• Consider the cultural heritage of a community as a possible focus of touristic attraction,
in terms of its promotion and preservation.

cultural identity of a community through the consequent increment in the –temporal
and permanent- flow of people in the region.
Module 4

operation of alternative tourism products and services.

and practical therefore, the teacher will give theoretical content’s lectures, students will
be asked to read, give presentations and have written exams as well as practical activities
that will include the analysis of field visits to develop the alternative tourism projects, which
is the only way to convey the scope and magnitude of the course’s main subject. The
suggested didactic technique will be Case Study or Project Oriented Learning (POL)
