Abstract

El archipiélago de San Andrés, Providencia y Santa Catalina, ubicado en el sur occidente del Mar Caribe, posee un ecosistema de gran riqueza ambiental por la biodiversidad de organismos marinos y terrestres que lo habitan. La economía gira alrededor de las actividades relacionadas con el turismo, el comercio y la pesca. Hay un gran potencial, sin embargo, los problemas ecológicos, la alta densidad de población y el aumento de la pobreza hacen que las actividades económicas productivas solo garanticen una limitada oferta pesquera, algunos productos agrícolas para autoconsumo y un turismo basado en la oferta de su medio ecosistémico y etnocultural que no ha sido explotado en su totalidad, pero bien manejados pueden ser fuente de mayor bienestar para sus habitantes.The archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina, located in the southwestern Caribbean Sea, is an ecosystem rich in environmental biodiversity of marine and terrestrial organisms. Its economy is centered on the activities related to tourism, trade, and fishing. The archipelago has great potential; however, environmental problems, high population density and increasing poverty make it difficult to expand productive economic activities. This is why today there is only a limited supply of fisheries, some agricultural products for consumption and tourism activities based on its factor endowment, which has not been fully exploited,
