Abstract

En la elección de destinos, la distancia presenta un efecto negativo debido al esfuerzo que supone desplazarse y a que generalmente implica mayores costes. Este artículo analiza si los individuos están dispuestos a recorrer mayores distancias para ir a un destino en el que pueden practicar, por ejemplo, actividades de ocio distintas a las que hacen el resto del año, o aumentar la frecuencia de sus actividades preferidas. La idea es que la sensibilidad a la distancia está influenciada a la hora de elegir un destino por la motivación de búsqueda de destinos que poseen determinadas actividades de ocio disponibles. In destination choice, distance shows a negative effect because it entails an effort to get to the destination and generally implies higher costs. Accordingly, this article attempts to analyze whether people are willing to cover longer distances to go to a destination where they can change recreational patterns; e.g. do recreational activities different from those at their place of residence, or do the same leisure activities as in their home environment with higher frequency. The idea is that distance sensitivity is influenced, at the moment of choosing a destination, by the driver of searching for destinations with specific recreational activities.
