Some tourism facilities, tour operators or hotels, implemented a development contribution, directly paid by the travelers, that is used to finance development projects in the locality. For example, a traveler who is going in a facility for 10 days to discover the area, full board costs $600, and in addition, he will pay $50 as a development contribution.
The money raised will allow projects to happen through an association such as buying school supplies, award ceremonie, or eventhe contribution of the construction of a school or a health center, etc.
