Improvement to make the archaeological site of Calakmul more accessible, as well as the construction of a floating dock in the city of Palizada, are two of the main tourist projects that aim to boost the economy of Campeche.
“These projects are important to diversify the economy of the state of Campeche and particularly of Ciudad del Carmen, closely linked to the oil industry, which is going through a temporary period of adjustment,” said the Secretary of Tourism Enrique de la Madrid.
In a working tour through Campeche, de la Madrid declared that the state has enormous potential as a beach, sport fishing and nature tourism destination, and this will allow an economic recovery particularly focused on the hospitality industry.
That is why the federal government, through the Tourism Secretariat, will explore financing options and other support mechanisms to diversify the economy of Campeche, reduce oil dependency and strengthen tourist attractions.
The Secretary underlined that projects proposed by local entrepreneurs, such as the improvement of the Ciudad del Carmen Malecón; the rescue of the North Beach area tourist facilities; and the creation of an eco-tourism development at the “Laguna de Términos” mangrove area, are being analyzed for feasibility.
In addition, there are joint projects with the Campeche state government, as in the case of Calakmul, that are being developed in coordination with Fonatur and the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), to take advantage of the great tourism opportunity that this destination has to offer.
During a brief meeting with local media, De la Madrid stated that the first steps to generate tourism projects that will revive the economy of Ciudad del Carmen, will be announced soon.
“The drop in oil prices and its impact to the state economy should be seen as an opportunity to develop the Tourism Industry in the region”, concluded the Secretary of Tourism. He recommended that local entrepreneurs offer competitive packages at low prices as a short term measure.
