Portuguese Tourism Segments in Latin America
The objective of this article is to describe segments of Portuguese holidaymakers traveling to Latin American destinations. A latent class logit model is used to identify segments of Portuguese tourists whose choices differ according to a mix of destination attributes, information gathered, previous experience, and individual socioeconomic characteristics. The model identifies three different segments characterized as nature repeat tourists, ethnic repeat tourists, and first-time tourists. These findings emphasize the importance of taking into account different choice behavior variables to segment the tourist market.
