Description In the context of tourism planning and development, the community is conceived as a nucleus of organized people committed to their collective well-being. The experience of community-based tourism and museum initiatives in communities is impacting the collective cultural practices and imaginations of a community. Thus, the need to study the theoretical articulation between community tourism and community museum was born, two locally based initiatives that in their constructive process converge to generate benefits for community development. In order to respond methodologically, the research used the theoretical documentary base and the method of analysis-synthesis. The descriptive character allowed identifying three criteria for reflection: correlation between ecology and culture; identity catalyst and community social structure strengthener. The results show that this articulation works in a complementary way because it shows the harmony of human beings between the ecological and cultural system, at the same time it represents a scenario of resilience because the diversification of activities provides alternative opportunities for community development.
En el contexto de la planificación y el desarrollo del turismo, la comunidad es concebida como núcleo de personas organizadas y comprometidas con su bienestar colectivo. La experiencia de las iniciativas del turismo comunitario y el museo en comunidades está incidiendo en las prácticas culturales e imaginarios colectivos de una comunidad. Es así que, nace la necesidad de estudiar la articulación teórica entre turismo comunitario y museo comunitario, dos iniciativas de base local que en su proceso constructivo confluyen para generar beneficios al desarrollo comunitario. Para responder metodológicamente la investigación se utilizó la base documental teórica y el método análisis síntesis. El carácter descriptivo permitió identificar tres criterios de reflexión: correlación ecología y cultura; catalizador de identidad y fortalecedor de estructura social comunitaria. Los resultados demuestran que dicha articulación funciona de manera complementaria porque muestra la armonía del ser humano entre el sistema ecológico y cultural, al mismo tiempo representa un escenario de resiliencia debido a que la diversificación de las actividades proporciona oportunidades alternativas de desarrollo comunitario.
