This paper explores the topic of sustainable tourism, making the case that it is the next big opportunity for Latin America. It does this by first introducing sustainable tourism as a concept and identifying key stakeholders who can be impacted by and responsible for its implementation. Then, through the use of case studies, the paper examines how the tourism industry is already embracing and implementing sustainability within Latin America, which helps to tease out key learnings and best practices for expanding the practice in the region. Finally, taking into account successful experiences from other parts of the world, the paper highlights areas in which the Latin America tourism industry can become even more sustainable going forward, ensuring that it continues to take full advantage of this growing trend.
