Tourism has been the key element of the development of the Canary Islands and helped in the construction of cultural identity and current social dynamics, as well as being the main source of direct and indirect economic resources. However, a detailed analysis reveals the paradox of tourism development and a progressive increase of the economic dependency of the industry, limited by the action of the local population who has seen improvements in their standard of living due to the implementation and development of tourism.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/74360||ISSN:||2042-1443||DOI:||10.1108/S2042-144320140000006019||Source:||Tourism As An Instrument For Development: A Theoretical And Practical Study[ISSN 2042-1443],v. 5, p. 241-264, (2014)|
