Sueños que son pesadillas: propagación del turismo de élite y menoscabo ecológico en el Pacífico Central de Costa Rica

Abstract : This paper discuses the advent of the elite tourism industry and its relation to multiple forms of systemic degradation that are taking place in the fragile context of Playa Herradura, in the Central Pacific of Costa Rica. The primary consideration in this discussion is how the spatial and ecological transmutation has severely impacted the local socioecosystems, creating powerful symbolism. From land grabbing and touristic exploitation of ecosystems, to the secession of the “winners” and the ghettoization of the local population, this phenomenon shows the pathological character of “development”.
