THOME ORTIZ, Humberto. Turismo rural y campesinado, una aproximación social desde la ecología, la cultura y la economía. Convergencia [online]. 2008, vol.15, n.47, pp.237-261. ISSN 2448-5799.

As a specific category, a definition of Rural Tourism should take place within a special dimension where it works directly with differential proceedings. The sprouting of this phenomenon can be explained as a conjunction of the severe crisis of the countryside. Post-materialism of the advanced societies within industry reacts in a new order for the Rural Field. In spite of the great potential in this particular type of tourism and due to its growth in the tourist markets, it can not be taken as the panacea to rural problems. Because of that we find it opportune to make a reflection upon the relation between peasantry, seen as an object of tourism. It is established with this relatively new and nontraditional activity as well as its shades in the economic, ecological and cultural spheres of the rural surroundings.

Keywords : Intercultural; pluri-activity; rural space; farming economy.
