Abstract—Sustainability was defined as “the fact which meets
the present needs without compromising the ability of future
generations to satisfy their own needs.” There are a lot of tourist
attractions with an incredible potential but without the
promotion or development needed to be streamlined, such is the
case of The Pooled Towns, a set of communities in the mountains
in northern highlands of Oaxaca, Mexico. This research is
aimed to analyze the characteristics of the tourism project
mentioned and its relation with local development and
community sustainability analysis from the Commonality
perspective. The development dimensions and elements
systematized in the available literature were analyzed and it will
have an analytical scope and empirical knowledge generation.
The relevance lies in the knowledge of the involvement of the
people in developing alternative tourism and its impact on
Index Terms—Community sustainability, ecotourism, pooled, commonality.
