    Abstract

    Las islas del Rosario son reconocidas como uno de los mejores atractivos turísticos del mundo, sin embargo, su desarrollo en el turismo no se ha visto reflejado en una mejor calidad de vida para sus residentes, quienes mantienen altos niveles de pobreza y miseria. El presente artículo muestra una caracterización de la oferta laboral de las Islas del Rosario y estima mediante un modelo probit la probabilidad de que un residente este vinculado a un empleo en el segmento primario, que comprende los empleos con mayor estabilidad y remuneración. Los resultados muestran que el bajo nivel de educación y capacitación de los nativos les dificulta el acceso a un empleo de este tipo, no obstante, esta dificultad aumenta si es mujer, joven y/o raizal. Específicamente, una mujer con el mismo nivel de capital humano que un hombre tiene un 21,2% menos de probabilidades de pertenecer al segmento primario, mientras que un raizal tiene un 14,8% menos de probabilidad que un no raizal.
