Tourist destinations have been operating in extremely competitive markets, forcing them to find innovative strategies to maintain or expand the flow of tourists visiting their region. In this way, it becomes fundamental that the managers perceive what are the aspects considered by the tourists as competitive advantages, motivating these to move to a certain destination. Through an empirical, exploratory and descriptive research, with a quantitative approach, the present study had as objective to analyze the competitive advantages of Bombinhas (Santa Catarina, Brazil) perceived by tourists.
