Abstract

Over the last century, tourism industries have grown. Tourism correlates to economic development. Many small communities however have struggled to increase their tourism. Villa Hayes, a city in rural Paraguay, has an undeveloped tourism market. This year’s project increased the city’s tourism through five deliverables. Deliverables included a guided tour with a brochure, two databases, a survey, and a tourist book. The team created these deliverables through discussions with key figures and in depth observations. During their time in Villa Hayes the team established a number of recommendations to help the city increase their tourism presence.
