Acapulco is reborn

We saw it as something impossible, I remember that it was announced by the Secretary of Tourism, Miguel Torruco, and he said it when we were at the World Travel Market 6 months ago, he told us that it was going to be held in Acapulco that the tianguis was going to continue to be held here and the impossible became possible. I think that here we see the unity that we Mexicans have and that is what we have to continue doing by supporting each other.

Is there good news for Quintana Roo and Cancun in this tianguis?

The state of Quintana Roo, the Mexican Caribbean, received 12 awards through Advisor, which are the Travelers Choice Awards, they told us that there are 467 million users monthly who enter the page and leave a comment and well from there they filter and well Cancun won with Playa Delfines, we had three awards for Cancun and they also took Costa Mujeres, Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. It was a very good thing for us

Is Cancun ready to welcome everyone with open arms?

Cancun is a benchmark, last year a record of 32.7 million passengers were broken at the Cancun International Airport and now we are still going with new records in Holy Week and Easter we also closed with a large number, we had 1.2 million tourists throughout Quintana Roo, Cancun is who keeps the most and we also had an 87% hotel occupancy, Cancun is no longer just a sun and beach destination, I have always commented on it for some years now and we have to be offering and promoting this new tourism that we have here. The platinum awards again on April 20, which we are very honored to have had that event that was announced at Fitur, we had the first Ibero-American Congress of sustainable, inclusive tourism, a great result.

What are we waiting for in Cancun during its 54th anniversary?

It is a very young city that has grown by leaps and bounds being the number one tourist destination in Latin America and we are waiting for you there on April 20 there will be an agenda that you can find at the Benito Juarez City Hall, there is all the information from April 15 to 21, we are celebrating and also Quintana Roo turns 50 years old, We started with the Cancun WordPress with the first celebration of the 50th anniversary and all year long we will be partying. So we're going to be waiting for you with open arms.
