    Resumen

    This work presents a methodological proposal based on a system of sustainability indicators through the Framework for the Evaluation of Natural Resource Management Systems Incorporating Sustainability Indicators, from which a comparative analysis of the Huasteca Potosina tourism systems was carried out, with the purpose of establishing interregional comparison standards. The indicators allowed the monitoring and evaluation of the degree of sustainability of the sub-basins by means of initiatives of citizen participation in the processes of planning of the main tourist destinations in the regional scope. In this way, it was possible to identify the conditions that limit and strengthen the development of sustainability in tourism, in order to foster a reflection on the commitments that can be adopted by tourism service providers to carry out actions that promote equity and improve the living conditions of the inhabitants of the local communities through the adequate conservation and restoration of the ecosystems from an ecological and social context that allows to develop an alternative model of sustainable tourism. The results generated criteria to formulate recommendations that contribute to the sustainable development of the region through the decision-making of the local population and the public administration; this is why this article is essential for the creation of measurement tools used to determine the evaluation methods for tourism activity in rural areas.
