An economic estimation was made of the social benefits generated by the implementation of a recovery and conservation program which has impact on the attributes of the Molino de Flores National Park (MFNP). Using the contingent valuation method, it is concluded that the MFNP has a conservation value of US$ 384,000 per year, and a value in perpetuity of US$ 4' 266, 667. Also estimated was the potential entrance fee to the park at Mex$24; value a person attaches to the benefit. The rate was estimated using a binomial logit model and the variables hypothetical price to pay, income level, educational level and environmental perception.

Keywords : Contingent valuation; binomial logit; willingness to pay.
