8 Special strengths Consolidated and differentiated offer in nature tourism: activities related with the environment - special reference to our Footpath Network. La Palma is a Biosphere Reserve (UNESCCO on November 2002). Important to mention the excellent safety for local people and visitors. Special needs (needs and threads) New competitors with lower costs in the tourist market with similar resources and visitor attractions. Lack of motivating and training programmes to stimulate local new businesses related with the tourist sector. Increase in prices and difficulty in reaching the Island due to connectivity problems.
