This research has a qualitative methodological basis where a bibliographic review, exploratory field visits, and semi-structured interviews were applied to representatives of local enterprises. The results show the characterization of local enterprises linked to ecotourism activity and an analysis based on the three pillars of sustainable development is presented.
