The relationship between water and tourism is characterized by a dual understanding of this element: as a precious resource and as an attraction. Considering water to be a valuable, scarce resource, researchers have conducted studies focused on identifying practical and business initiatives through which water-based tourism can be developed without jeopardizing the quality and availability of water resources. In this sense, the relationship between water and tourism is focused on sustainability.

Different types of bodies of water can sustain several, diverse forms of tourism, such as beach tourism, river tourism, tourism of reservoirs, lakes, and natural pools, and tourism of thermal waters. The latter must undoubtedly be considered to be the oldest form of tourism in general and, certainly, the oldest form of water-based tourism, in particular.
