Description

"Tourism at La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Costa Rica

Samantha Burk This project explores tourist visits at the La Paz Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica. This park is a protected area for education about native wildlife and contains hiking trails to five waterfalls. My research will explore where tourists to this site come from, and does seasonality affect tourist visits. I will conduct both online (social media) and on-site surveys of visitors, in order to determine where tourists are visiting from and how they heard about the park. I will conduct the on-site surveys, as well as semi-structured interviews, during both wet and dry seasons, to determine if seasonal weather conditions affect tourist visits. My results will help local tourism authorities in marketing and planning for tourist visits. (Note: this poster presents proposed research, and not completed research.)"
