Over the decades, tourism has experienced continued growth and developing diversification to become one of the fastest growing economic sectors worldwide. Every year the tourism industry has experienced steady growth. International tourist arrivals increased from 528 million in 2005 to 1.19 billion in 2015 (Dacelle, 2004). Modern tourism is closely related to development and includes a growing number of new destinations. These dynamics have turned tourism into a key driver for socio-economic progress. Tourism became one of the major actors in international commerce, and represents at the same time one of the main income sources for many developing countries (Sedarati, 2015). This growth goes hand in hand with an increasing diversification and competition among destinations, this global spread of tourism in developed states has produced economic and employment benefits in many related sectors including construction to agriculture or telecommunications (Neto, 2003). Moreover, the contribution of tourism to economic well- being depend on the quality and the revenues of the tourism offer. UNWTO assists destinations in their sustainable positioning in ever more complex national and international markets. As the UN agency dedicated to tourism, UNWTO points out that particularly developing countries stand to benefit from sustainable tourism and acts to help make this a reality (Pedersen, 2013).
