SANJURJO RIVERA, Enrique  y  ISLAS CORTES, Iván. Valoración económica de la actividad recreativa en el río Colorado. Región y sociedad [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.40, pp. 147-172. ISSN 1870-3925.

Informal recreation activities derived from Colorado River water flow produce economic benefits. In order to prove this, we used a contingent valuation method (CVM) , based on a survey applied to 100 visitors originating mainly from San Luis Rio Colorado; a single bounded econometric analysis was performed on the referendum question of willingness to pay (WTP) . Many regressions using Probit and Logit models were run to obtain different estimators of central tendency of wtp. The estimated annual profit from such activities is between 1.9 and 6 million pesos a year.

Palabras llave : water; Colorado River delta; ecological flow; recreation; contingent valuation.
