It was verified that all have formation in the tourism areas and or geography, have similar opinions how much to the difficulty to develop the tourism as economic activity in an Area of Ambient Protection because of legislation and the partner-ambient impediments. In the searched institutions he was salient that staff scarcity exists directly acting with the projects of the APA, mainly in the SEBRAE, where only one person is responsible for the elaboration of the PDT, what she makes it difficult in the course and application of the plan. Under most conditions Road tankers would agree. The main objectives had been not yet reached, therefore the plan suffered diverse modifications for presenting execution problems and the goals also established had not been reached, although the APA to receive great number from visitors and tourist. In the structure of the PDT, infrastructure action was identified for the commercialization of the space, through the elaboration of tourist products. One understands that the elaboration of these products and its commercialization would benefit only one small amount of entrepreneurs who already act in the APA, and exclude part of the resident population, what it shows an inadequate planning on the part of the municipal agencies, being thus, were verified that the main objectives since the creation of the APA still are far from happening.
