CANCUN, Q. Roo. — The Ministry of Tourism of Quintana Roo reported through its official Twitter account that the municipalities of Tulum and Isla Mujeres became the new Magical Towns of Quintana Roo.
The announcement came during National Magical Towns Fair, which took place Sept. 25-27 in the city of Puebla, where Quintana Roo Governor Roberto Borge Angulo, was in attendance for the announcement.
Some of the advantages to be gained by municipalities from becoming “Magical Towns” are economic gains for the population and therefore sources of direct and indirect employment, in addition to improvement in the urban image.
Bacalar was previously the only Quintana Roo municipality with this recognition that provides a better tourism image, promotion and visitor safety. Other municipalities of Quintana Roo who sought to enter the Magical Towns program included Lazaro Cardenas, Holbox and Felipe Carrillo Puerto.
Through social networks, the governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge Angulo and the Ministry of Tourism, made the official announcement.
The conference in Puebla featured the presence of the 83 localities that already held the declaration of Magical Town.
In Yucatan and Southeast Mexico, the following communities now hold the title of Magical Towns:
- Izamal, Yucatán
- Valladolid, Yucatán
- Bacalar, Quintana Roo
- Tulum, Quintana Roo
- Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo
- Palizada, Campeche
- Tapijulapa, Tabasco
- Comitán, Chiapas
- San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas
- Chiapa de Corzo, Chiapas
“Pueblos Mágicos” (Magical Towns) is a program developed by Mexico’s Ministry of Tourism (SECTUR), in conjunction with other government agencies, which recognizes those who inhabit these cities and the efforts they have developed to protect and save their cultural richness. The program was created in the year 2001.
SECTUR has designated several small towns and cities throughout the Mexican territory as “Pueblos Mágicos”.
These towns, where important historical events in the life of Mexico took place, feature either a strong influence of indigenous past, or a great legacy of the the old Spanish colonial empire, preserving secular and ancient traditions.
