President Enrique Peña Nieto announced  on May 6th, 2014, that his Government will allocate 180 billion pesos in tourism infrastructure.

This kind of financial support is vital to consolidate the positioning of Mexico as a world leader in this industry.

The investment is divided in three strategies:

The first one contemplates the rescue of beaches (as well as the construction of at least 20 public parks in the main ports in the country); the rehabilitation of historic centers in Colonial Cities, as well as a program to support the country’s “Magical Towns” to raise the number of these to 100 before the end of the current administration.

The second strategy has to do with the consolidation of the Mesoamerican heritage, developing sustainable resorts in the archaeological sites of Teotihuacan (State of Mexico); Calakmul (Campeche), Palenque (Chiapas) and Chichén Itza (Yucatán).

These archaeological sites (specially Chichén Itzá), are Historic and Cultural Landmarks that need to be properly promoted worldwide, in order to boost the growth of tourism infrastructure around them, for the benefit of local population and the whole country.

The third strategy includes the refurbishment of the main airports to make them more user friendly and efficient; the modernization of tourist harbors, the creation of new roads and highways and the construction of new Convention Centers.
