Quintana Roo is one of the biggest tourist destinations in Mexico, boasting the cities of Cancun, Chetumal, Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen, Felipe Carillo Puerto, Tulum, Jose Maria Morelos, Bacalar, Alfredo V. Bonfil, and Isla Mujeres.
Isla Mujeres, along with Lazaro Cardenas (Holbox), Tulum, and Felipe Carillo Puerto, are candidates for the “Magical Town” recognition by the state of Quintana Roo, for having high touristic and cultural values, a title currently held by Bacalar. Isla Mujeres would be the first island to receive this recognition.
For city to be considered “Magic Town”, it needs to achieve a certain standard. For one, the city needs to have an active committee which includes towns people and entrepreneurs, in order to secure the parameters and decision-making involved.
On the 20th of April, a representative from SECTUR will be visiting the island to judge the city’s standards. Isla Mujeres has beautiful beaches, hotspots like “Punta Sur”, regional parties, carnivals, and beautiful antique Haciendas.
SECTUR will be announcing the results of its deliberations in July. If any of the cities fails the inspection, they will be given future assistance toward gaining the title.
