Tourism and health are two closely linked concepts. Both are directly related and very important to national economy and social policies. In this paper we present some reflections regarding those salient aspects of health and tourism that require to be strengthened. A series of recommendations are offered to contribute to the improvement of sanitation in the tourism sector, with special emphasis on preventive measures, joint action between the sectors involved, and emphasizing the role of the emporiatry concerning the protection and promotion of the health of the tourist. Finally, it is recognized that the actions required are the responsibility of all of those individuals involved in tourism: the visitor and the residents on the one hand; and services providers and the authorities, on the other hand.
