Abstract

This article aims to demonstrate how low-income community and underdeveloped northeastern Brazil are organized independently to provide products and services of Community Based Tourism. For this we use the experience of Porto de Pedras community, that with the creation of a residents’ association, organized the observation tourism Manatee Navy in its territory. In sequence presents the partial results of the case study started in this community by Design course at the Federal University of Alagoas. Finally, we discuss how service design can take advantage of this autonomy to help promote the development of these communities and the strengthening of the local identity sense.
