Abstract

Community-based tourism (CBT) can be a tool for sustainable development in least developed countries; however, careful selection of participating communities is vital to achieving development outcomes. This article presents resident perceptions of self and the community (and its tourism organizers) as potential indicators for future CBT success both contributing to theoretical concepts but pragmatically potentially also assists practitioners to identify communities that theoretically should produce better development outcomes before embarking on projects.
