CARTUCHE P., David; ROMERO D., Juleysi  y  ROMERO D., Yajaira. Multicriteria evaluation of the tourist resources in Uzhcurrumi Parish, Pasaje Canton, Province of El Oro. Rev. interam. ambient. tur. [online]. 2018, vol.14, n.2, pp.102-113. ISSN 0717-6651.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-235X2018000200102.

The tourist potential of a territory depends on the assessment of its resources. The province of El Oro, located in the coastal region of Ecuador, has great biodiversity and a scenic beauty that makes it ideal for tourist activities. The aim of this work was to analyze the possibilities of utilizing the tourist resources of Uzhcurrumi Parish, Pasaje Canton, Province of El Oro, Ecuador. As a methodology, the inventory of 14 existing resources was considered, as well as a quantitative evaluation based on the techniques of multicriteria evaluation tools (MET), starting with the definition of intrinsic and extrinsic criteria for each resource type. Then, the study attributes were determined and the decision matrix was constructed. The application of the weighted linear combination led to the final ranking of the tourist resources. The results reveal that the Chillayacu Spa and the Chillayacu Caverns are the best qualified resources, so it is suggested that they be the starting point for development of potential tourist products. An important implication is that the evaluation of tourist resources is a valuable tool to guide decision-making in tourist planning and development processes.
