How is the participation of the Mexican Caribbean in this tourist festival going?

We come with everything, as you can see the stand, it's very good. The campaign is very well exposed, very good campaign, which shows all the strengths of the Mexican Caribbean, there is more with the ability or versatility that can be applied in social networks, in traditional media and segmented by destination, in addition to the participation of the different associations of hotels and companies, the truth is that we are happy to participate and above all with the intention, As I have said, the first is to do and generate business and economy for the Mexican Caribbean and the second is to be in solidarity with Acapulco and with the event, with the tianguis.

Mara Lezama is the new coordinator of CONAGO's Tourism Commission, how do you think this will benefit Quintana Roo?

It's going to benefit all of Mexico because finally CONAGO in that area does something very successful, which is to put a person who is directly involved with tourism and who lives an authority who lives tourism, who is aware of what tourism means for his state and who can transmit it and communicate it and make it noticed and give it the value and proportion that corresponds to the others states that have tourist destinations in the country. Her appointment is very successful, we are very happy and obviously she has our full support, her and the Secretary of Tourism, Bernardo Cueto.

The Mexican Caribbean never goes unnoticed, how is the mood at this Tianguis Turístico 2024?

We have had appointments and there has been no shortage of people and companies that requested them, in fact in particular in my company and the other companies that come, we have had appointments that have manifested themselves and that we had not contemplated, that is to say that it manifests itself at the moment, and that is a good sign, what there is is working and we are doing business and as I say it is an event that we must not miss, No one, no tourist destination because it is an event that is 48 years old and we cannot let it fall, we have to make it strengthen and continue.

What would be your forecast at the end of 2024 in terms of tourism for Quintana Roo?

I think it's going to be good, it's doing well, we have very good numbers, the CPTQ has very good statistical research strategies, we are sounding out markets, possibilities of new routes, we have to work together with ASUR to create new routes more frequently, there is news about visas, although there are others that are a little discouraging such as the issue of Ecuador or visas from Peru. But we hope that the delivery of visas will be agile to facilitate the access of tourists to the country.

Is there still this confidence in Quintana Roo?

Yes, of course, there is a lot, there is a lot of interest in investment, obviously it has to be ordered, it has to be taken care of, the State has to be taken care of, the tourist destinations, each tourist destination has to be taken care of in an orderly manner in construction with a balance and a balance between what is done and what it is going to demand in terms of basic services. such as electricity, roads, drainage, drinking water, etc.


We're going to do everything we can, we're going to go out, we don't have the position of waiting for them to come to us, in business we're going to look, businesses in this activity have to go to the market, we don't have to wait for them to buy from you, we're not a booth on the corner we have to go looking for customers.
