Abstract: The aim was to determine the importance of the biodiversity on the decision to visit six Natural Parks of Peru. For this, a sample of tourists and the discrete travel cost model are used to estimate the demand of multiple places with different attributes. The results confirm that the probability of choice depends on the access routes, the biodiversity, the distance, and the cost of the trip. The effect of the biodiversity is less important than that of access routes. A conservation policy that considers these attributes will be key for the management of the biodiversity.
