Overwhelmed by all the tourist merchandising, it´s getting harder around here to find spots on the coastal regions of the country, where things still have an untouched felling, where hotels are not taking the place of homes or whole towns and nature still behaves like nature and not like a roadshow. From 1986 when the total of foreign visitors amounted just 260.840 to the 2.192.059 visitors in 2011 and 3.016.667 in 2018, the stress on our coasts and protected areas has increased dramatically, making resources like land and water a point of friction between local inhabitants, large touristic projects and conservation initiatives. And the main reason is no small talk: in 2018 the income from tourist related activities reached almost $3.823,7 million, more than all our main agricultural exports combined. This series is a short approach to some of those fading scenarios, a nostalgic grasp of times when traveling around here used to mean a chance to breathe, see and listen.
