Abstract: Tourism has contributed to economic development of territories and regions, understood as a synonymous of economic growth. The potential of tourism to drive economic growth is known, but it is also known that it can encourage inequities. Without detailing what type of development and for whom, the word development is used as an ideology of progress for all. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between development theories and tourism, specifically knowing how each theoretical current analyzes the contribution of tourism to development and present some critical aspects about this possible contribution.
