Resumen

El debate turístico previo a la pandemia estuvo protagonizado por el fenómeno del overtourism, con un crecimiento exponencial de la literatura científica. No obstante, en el momento de la irrupción del coronavirus, este topic aún estaba en un estadio inicial. Aunque las restricciones de movilidad derivadas del Covid-19 frenaron el overtourism, el problema está aún lejos de haberse erradicado. Hoy es más patente la necesidad de un cuerpo sólido de conocimientos sobre el cual construir la recuperación del sector, evitando cometer los errores del pasado.

Este trabajo realiza una revisión exhaustiva de la literatura previa a la pandemia, proponiendo un marco conceptual para el análisis del overtourism que integra sus causas y consecuencias. Se discute cómo la pandemia podría convertirse en una oportunidad para la transición hacia un modelo de turismo responsable.
