As part of the diplomatic work to strengthen the commercial and touristic relationship between Great Britain and Quintana Roo, on Tuesday June 21st the state secretary of Tourism, Raul Andrade Angulo was host to the Baroness Lucy Neville-Rolfe, UK Tourism Minister, accompanied by the British Ambassador, Duncan Taylor.
During the trip to Tulum’s archeological site, the diplomats enjoyed the cultural and gastronomical wealth of the place, and got to hear about the history of the Maya remains from certified tourist guides.
Raul Andrade Angulo indicated that for the Governor, Roberto Borge Angulo, it is fundamental to continue working on setting the bases in touristic matters to maintain Quintana Roo as a leader in tourism for all Latin America.
After the English Consulate was inaugurated in Cancun, bonds were tightened to make the relationship in touristic and commercial matters stronger; this represents currently the main touristic market from Europe to Quintana Roo, followed by the Spain, German, Italian and French markets.
Andrade Angulo added that the importance in this market for the state lies mainly in the fact that the average stay is 15 nights per traveler; with a spending range of approximately 2,900 euro each, which places them as a high spending market segment.
The Secretary of Tourism added that most of the British citizens that travel to Quintana Roo come from London, Birmingham and Glasgow.
