RESISTANCE OF A PEOPLE WITH TOURIST PROJECTS. THE CASE OF SANTIAGO DEL ESTERO AND ITS THERMAL WATERS
Santiago del Estero, located in the heart of the Argentine Republic is characterized by being a tourist destination with a strong call in winter season, mainly due to its micro climate of pleasant temperature in the middle of winter in our region.
In the city of Termas de Rio Hondo, for many years the thermal baths were the only possibility that was given to the tourist with scarce hotel infrastructure just to access the baths in the miraculous and healing hot springs. However, in recent years and with the effort of different actors managed to break with this propensity. The enormous public infrastructure effort made by the provincial government resulted in the interest of private investors. The growing hotel offer in quality and variety make it an attractive place of rest, supported not only by its hot springs and its typical gastronomy, but also spaces of recreational interest that are located there.
This project hit a wall, called a pandemic, which, as a side effect, led to the economic ruin of entire villages.
However, in a people accustomed to fighting, the hope of a better future rules in hearts and although here it was tried to survive, people are preparing to resurface in the post-pandemic.
This work investigates and describes the efforts of the people of this province to revive the bet that has been made for years in Santiago del Estero, and with particular description, The Termas of Rio Hondo.
