Resumen

En la presente investigación, se reimagina el modelo de visita de Stanley Plog (1967) Psicocentrismo - Asocentrismo. El investigador descompone el modelo original del Plog e identifica cinco curvas más pequeñas en forma de campana que constituyen cinco turistas dentro de los destinos normales en gran medida preferidos por los incipientes, los destinos que están cerca del final de sus ciclos de vida se vuelven atractivos para ellos una vez más.
