Student travel: an option for cultural tourism
Within the new educational designs in Mexico emphasis has been given to the method of students performing more extra classroom activities, which is why the practice of conducting trips to places where they can apply or reaffirm what they learned in the classroom. Regarding the area of Humanities, History and Tourism specifically, travel is a very useful tool, considering the importance for the History student of knowing the places where different events took place, as well as the cultural heritage of their country, which helps them understand and value other cultures, also provides experiences that help them in their personal formation. Taking into account the pros and cons of student travel, we have sought to review the aspects they have, not only as a didactic resource, in this case as a branch of cultural tourism, for which from the experience of Undergraduate students in History of the Autonomous University of Zacatecas make a comparison between the definition of cultural tourism and the way in which these trips comply with it, concluding that they are a little vein taken into account as a tourist resource , although they meet all the parameters.
