Title: Puerto Rico 2000: Building a new future
Author: Boria-Marcano, Griselle
Abstract: This study focuses on the identification of limiting conditions affecting the tourism industry in Puerto Rico. In order to provide a clear understanding of the tourism situation of the island, a broad outlook of the tourism performance is presented. It includes an economic background of Puerto Rico and the tourism activity, as well as a discussion of the areas involved and their problematic issues. The information gathered for this study was developed through personal interviews and primary data sources. While searching for problematic issues affecting the tourism industry, eight limits to growth were identified as most relevant: High Hotel Room Rates; Insufficient Number of Room Available; Cuba as a Potential Competitor for the Caribbean Tourism; Financial Problems Affecting the Cruise Industry; and High Crime Rate. These problematic issues were schematically presented in form of "Limits to Growth" cycles (Peter Senge's The Fifth Discipline [1990]) and placed in a matrix to compare and analyze the findings.
