Abstract
    Beach management in Latin America is described, focused on analysis of beach certification schemes currently implemented in this continent. Initially, core concepts about beach management are discussed, in order to establish a common framework. Moreover, several initiatives to measure quality are analysed, looking for identifying those tools able to give a certification. Afterwards, 9 beach certification schemes applied in 12 Latin American countries are described (Argentina, Brasil Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico and Uruguay), according to their origin, administrative framework, structure and implementation. Finally, advance in beach management in Latin America is discussed, pointing out main conceptual, methodological and practical challenges to be achieved for scientific and decision makers of the continent.
