Welcome to the Travel and Tourism at the Latin American Library Research Guide, where you can find information and resources to navigate research at LAL.

The Latin American Library at Tulane University is one of the most comprehensive of its kind, housing materials from the contact period to the present day. The LAL Special Collections hold a vast collection of materials related to travel and tourism in Latin America, including photo albums, letters, diaries, postcard collections. The heart of the collection is an array of travel-related ephemera, including guidebooks, posters, maps, and brochures. The ephemera collection contains materials related to many countries throughout Latin America, with Mexico and Central America as special regions of focus. The materials span the 19th and 20th centuries, and document travel by sea, rail, road and air.
