Palabras clave: Visitantes, Cultura hawaiana, Reintegración, Turismo


La industria del viaje en Hawaii ha estado experimentando una tendencia hacia un turismo más auténtico, que reintegra la cultura hawaiana en la experiencia de los visitantes. Este estudio se cen- tra en la reintegración de la cultura hawaiana en la experiencia turística en las islas hawaianas repasando la literatura existente, y analizando los datos a partir de una encuesta a turistas. El propósito del estudio era determinar si existía una demanda de los visitantes para una experiencia más auténtica del turismo en Hawaii a través de la reintegración de la cultura hawaiana, y si era así cuales son los esfuerzos que se debían hacer o continuar haciendo para alcanzar esta autenticidad. Otros aspectos que fueron examina- dos incluyen la imagen que los visitantes tienen de Hawaii, sus expectativas, sus experiencias y la satis- facción durante su estancia, su interés y comprensión de la cultura hawaiana, además del tipo de expe- riencias culturales que les interesan. Según los resultados de este estudio, los visitantes de habla inglesa están interesados en la cultura hawaiana y sienten que la cultura hawaiana no está representada suficien- temente en la experiencia turística que actualmente se oferta. La conclusión es, por lo tanto, que deben incrementarse los esfuerzos por integrar la cultura hawaiana en la experiencia turística.
