Resumen

La economía colaborativa sigue expandiéndose en el sector turístico. Aunque ya existía desde hace tiempo, la oferta de actividades turísticas en este ámbito está adquiriendo una mayor relevancia debido a la irrupción de Airbnb. En este artículo aportamos información detallada del tipo de actividades turísticas que se oferta, se compara con las actividades existentes en dos plataformas de actividades profesionales, y se analizan los proveedores teniendo en cuenta lo que la literatura de la economía colaborativa establece al respecto. Se descargaron los datos de Airbnb de cuatro comunidades autónomas españolas y se analizaron de manera cuantitativa y cualitativa. Los resultados reflejan que la economía colaborativa y la economía tradicional comparten similitudes en su oferta de actividades turísticas, a la vez que también presentan diferencias. Una buena parte de sus proveedores no tiene el perfil que tradicionalmente se les ha atribuido en la literatura sobre le economía colaborativa. A su vez, los responsables de la gestión de los destinos turísticos pueden estar tranquilos en lo referido a la percepción de sus visitantes, dado el alto nivel de satisfacción que muestran los mismos.
