Description On the Eastern part of the border between Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul, there is an important complex of canyons that attracts mainly visitors interested in ecotourism and adventure tourism. In Santa Catarina, Praia Grande is a practically obligatory way towards the canyons area, and this fact seems to mean that the tourism sector is present in this município. This study addresses this subject trying both to portray Praia Grande as a touristic destination  and to explore some hints concerning social and economic outcomes. It is indicated that Praia Grande receives tourists from different parts of Brazil and other countries, and that its offer of touristic services grew rapidly since the mid-2000s. In institutional terms, some measures for tourism promotion and planning have been witnessed, but they appear to be timid and far from representing a real involvement with tourism development.
A leste da fronteira entre Santa Catarina e Rio Grande do Sul há um grande complexo de cânions que integra os atrativos turísticos do sul do Brasil e recebe sobretudo interessados em ecoturismo e turismo de aventuras. No lado catarinense, Praia Grande é passagem praticamente obrigatória para quem demanda esse patrimônio, o que confere sentido à ideia de que o setor de turismo tem presença nesse município. O estudo aborda tal assunto procurando caracterizar Praia Grande como destino turístico e oferecer uma ideia sobre reflexos socioeconômicos locais. Mostra-se que o município recebe visitantes oriundos de vários estados brasileiros e países e que a oferta de serviços turísticos (hospedagem, alimentação) cresceu rapidamente desde meados dos anos 2000. No plano institucional, as medidas de promoção e planejamento do setor têm sido tímidas, longe de representarem um real engajamento na expansão do setor.
