From a qualitative approach through a primary and secondary data triangulation strategy, thematic analysis techniques and content analysis were carried out to understand the stages of tourism investment in Caviahue and its implications in the destination development. The results of this research revealed a number of negative effects of amenity migration processes in Caviahue tourist development and competitiveness.
