The study is descriptive and the method, inductive. The sample corresponds to 29 tourist inns within the metropolitan area, the fi nite population formula was used. The instrument used for the collection of information was the questionnaire applied to owners and administrators. In order to analyze the internal control system, Ruíz’s methodology (1998) was used.
