Artesania and Crafts

Local production of crafts or artesania can contribute to economic development within a community. What are the connections between the production and sale of artesania and ecotourism? There has been impressive academic work by Robert Healy, whose research project is to determine how residents of tourism destinations, particularly those in rural Third World settings, can obtain greater financial benefit from tourist visitation. Buying from the artisan helps lessen the chance for exploitation -- particularly if you pay a fair price.

In many Latin American markets, negotiation is part of the process. Too often well-meaning tourists will drive a hard bargain to save a nickel. If you find something you like, offer what you consider a fair price rather than the lowest possible bid.

On the downside, not all crafts available in markets are produced by or benefit local artesans. Nor is production always sustainable. Be wary of buying products made with feathers or animal skins if you're trying to protect nature!

If you are interested in this topic, please bookmark this page as we explore the connections among the production and marketing of artesania and the goals of ecotourism -- conservation and local economic development.
