Share This

In order to boost tourism in the three states of the Yucatan Peninsula, local businessmen Miguel Quintana Pali and Carlos Constandse Madrazo, will present the Grand Mayan Peninsula initiative during the Tourism Tianguis Quintana Roo, (Tianguis Turístico Quintana Roo) to be held in Cancun from 3 to 11 of May, 2014.

Raul Marrufo Gonzalez , State Secretary of Tourism (Sedetur) reported that this project, which was introduced a year ago during the implementation of the National Tourism Forum, seeks to “erase” the geographical boundaries of the three states that conform the Peninsula.

The official said that the project objective is to generate new tourism products to offer to visitors and achieve higher averages on extended stays. The average stay right now ranges from five to six days among Yucatan, Campeche and Quintana Roo altogether.

He made it clear that to include other destinations is not a competition but a complement that benefits all, as the income will reach sites that today are not being favored by tourism.

“We want to be positive and innovative in these areas, because we can not continue working in the same way, we have to accept that this innovation in the tourist approach, will benefit everybody,” Marrufo Gonzalez said.

He also stated that this type of programs, such as the “Gran Peninsula Maya” tourism project, seek to be encouraged and launched in Tourism Expos, not only on 2014, but during the entire State Administration.

For this year’s edition of the Tourism Tianguis Quintana Roo 2014, more international media, and alternative markets will be attending.
