El turismo representa una actividad fundamental dentro de una economía, por los diferentes impactos que tiene sobre otros sectores. En el mundo se está viviendo cierto auge en la actividad turística, reflejando Colombia similares tendencias en esta materia. Recientemente se está presentando un fenómeno revaluativo del tipo de cambio peso-dólar, aspecto este que motiva al estudio de tal situación, e indagar la influencia que tiene esta variable sobre la demanda de exportaciones y de importaciones turísticas, lo que constituye el objeto de estudio del presente trabajo. El método de MCO (Mínimos Cuadrados Ordinarios) es la herramienta que permite la consecución de tal propósito, luego de verificar la existencia de raíces unitarias. Finalmente los resultados obtenidos permiten concluir que para los turistas extranjeros los precios relativos no resultan ser determinantes al decidir considerar a Colombia como destino turístico y que los colombianos que deciden efectuar turismo en el exterior están aprovechando el contexto revaluativo favorable, que se refleja en las progresivas disminuciones en el nivel de precios internos. ****** The tourism represents a fundamental activity inside an economy, for the different impacts that it has on other sectors.
