In the new millennium tourism consumers are demanding greater quality in their tourism products delivered in a sustainable way. The Brundtland Report (1987) defined sustainability as the ability to be meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This led to the emergence of sustainable tourism as a new form of tourism. Sustainable tourism is tourism that takes full account of its present and future economic, social, and environmental impacts, addressing the need of visitors, the industry, the environment, and host communities. Sustainable tourism has emerged to counteract the negative impacts of tourism on destinations from both the supply and demand (Paul, 2013)
