This publication explores sustainable development of tourism in two regions. One in Costa Rica (Manuel Antonio-Quepos). One in the Netherlands (island of Texel). The study aims at comparing perceptions, practices and strategies in the two regions. It analyses developments and practices in terms of planning, organization and design of sustainable development of tourism in both regions. Information on these perceptions, practices and strategies was gathered from people through household surveys, interviews and workshops with stakeholders. The study also generates learning effects for other regions in the world coping with socio-cultural, economic and environmental consequences of tourism. - (AGD)
