This hypothesis is analysed with the case study of the island of Tenerife using the estimation of a count data model. It was found that the length of the stay and the information obtained from previous visits and/or relatives and friends might increase the return to a destination suggesting the presence of a reputation mechanism as proposed by Shapiro (1983). The determinants of the willingness to return were also estimated, confirming the main result.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/47042||ISSN:||0003-6846||DOI:||10.1080/00036840500293474||Source:||Applied Economics[ISSN 0003-6846],v. 37, p. 2055-2065|
