Abstract

Tourism literature includes several studies that either elaborate single variable models or present limited frameworks to explain tourism competitiveness, with a few exceptions focusing on developing a comprehensive tourism destination competitiveness model that incorporates numerous elements. In this article, the models of Crouch and Ritchie, Dwyer and Kim, and Heath are described in detail and are contrasted for their comprehensiveness as well as for their validity and applicability to specific destinations.
