Introduction

Editor SJRD

The works that are part of this special number of Spanish Journal of Rural Development (SJRD) are the result of the First International Congress on Rural Tourism: "Capacities strengthening in the communities", organized by the Academic Group "Socio-cultural impacts of the tourism" of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico and Brunca Regional Seat of the National University of Costa Rica, hold between 25 and 27 September, 2013 in Costa Rica.

It should be noted that although it is the first of special number of SJRD published this year, we hope that it is not the only one, and it could suppose, a brilliant new step of our journal because moving in a complex and tediously environment is a laborious work, looking for an admired scientific quality. I conclude, therefore, as it could not be in another way, solemnly: "The pen is the tongue of the soul; as are the thoughts engendered there, so will be the things written " (" The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quijote "by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra).
