OSM do not have standard tag for many things.  The best way to get a
feel of what the community is tagging is by looking at what other
people are using (which is what we all do).

Some tools that maybe helpful:
osmdoc ( tagging stats for the whole world) -
http://osmdoc.com/en/tag/tourism/#values
tagwatch ( tagging stats for some countries) -
http://tagwatch.stoecker.eu/Philippines/En/keystats_tourism.html
and a shiny new feature in Potlatch called "Find tag" (bottom of your
Potlach window)
