Well-being is one of the main goals of people today. In fact, “Good health and well-being” is the goal number 3 of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN for 2030.

In this context, tourist experiences are of particular importance for the promotion of well-being, and the services provided by the tourism sector should seek to promote significant positive experiences for tourists, which should not be limited to the space and time of these experiences, but that can last in the memories of those who experience them.

In this thematic issue of JTSW, some contributions are presented that help to understand the importance of Psychology of Well-Being Applied to Tourism, namely in the study of some variables of Positive Psychology, such as quality of life, happiness and satisfaction with life.

The selected articles are complementary as they address both the well-being of hospitality professionals and the well-being of tourists, with a particular focus on senior tourism. There is also complementarity in the type of studies published, as there are articles that present empirical results, but there are also articles that perform a systematic literature review, and there is also an article that performs a bibliometric analysis.
