GALAN CUEVAS, Gladis Elén et al. Agrotourism in two municipalities of Sierra Juárez, Oaxaca, Mexico. agric. soc. desarro [online]. 2019, vol.16, n.2, pp.219-237.  Epub 25-Feb-2020. ISSN 1870-5472.

Agrotourism is a complementary activity and a strategy in agriculture to strengthen the development of rural communities due to its capacity to generate non-agricultural incomes for peasant families. It integrates economic aspects, of conservation of natural resources, social and cultural aspects, and community participation in a coherent and harmonious way. The objective of the study was to assess the potential for agrotourism, cultural and natural attractions, and infrastructure present in rural spaces of the municipalities of San Miguel Amatlán and Santa Catarina Lachatao in Oaxaca. To assess the viability of agrotourism of the municipalities, a structured interview and the questionnaire was applied to a sample of 81 peasants selected randomly, determining that farmers are adult people (54 years) with low schooling (6.3 years). Inhabitants of the municipality of Lachatao have greater interest in the provision of agrotourism services, highlighting tourism practices in their orchards. The municipalities have sociocultural and natural elements, and a diversity of wild species that belong to their environment which make possible the development of agrotourism activities. It is desirable for the peasant to receive training in agroecological aspects, without losing sight of the fact that coexistence and sharing practices and knowledge will become part of their daily work.
