El objetivo consiste en analizar la transformación económica estructural del sector servicios en el estado de Colima (México) y entre sus municipios entre 1980 y 2003. Con esta finalidad, aplicamos la metodología de Garza (2004:11-14), la cual clasifica los servicios en los dos grupos generales siguientes: a) comercio y servicios al productor y b) comercio y servicios al consumidor, así como otras clasificaciones entre cada grupo general. Los principales resultados sugieren que algunos municipios pudieran estar experimentando una revolución terciaria basada en el crecimiento de la industria de servicios profesionales mientras que el turismo parece estar perdiendo competitividad.

Main results suggest that some municipalities may be experiencing a tertiary revolution based on a growing professional services industry while tourism seems to be losing competitiveness.
