Beneficio económico y turismo ecosistémico. El caso de las termales en Michoacán, México
The hot springs tourism is an economically important recreational activity that has been practiced traditionally in Zinapecuaro and Ciudad Hidalgo - Michoacán, Mexico. The economic benefit of the recreational use of this service represents a significant income for the regional economy. In this paper we estimated the economic value of recreational ecosystem services of Zinapecuaro. The results show that the benefit of thermal water use increases to two million of Mexican pesos for 2010 and, considering a discount rate of 10% for the next 20 years, future economic value of this service increases up to eighteen million pesos. From the economic point of view this justifies the implementation of a strategy of sustainable use that will allow regional projects expand on this natural resource.
