The natural beauties, the cultural and archaeological attractions of southern Quintana Roo, coupled with the promotion that the State Government has done, are already in the vacation plan of thousands of American, Canadian and European tourists who see this region as “The new tourist frontier of Mexico.”
Major online news outlets, such as the USAToday, are already dedicating special reports to this area of Quintana Roo, that includes Tulum, Mahahual, Bacalar and Chetumal.
To promote tourism development in the center and south of Quintana Roo and contribute to the reduction of inequality between the north and the south, Governor Carlos Joaquín reoriented public policies, which allows us to advance together in the consolidation of the state as a regional tourist powerhouse.
Carlos Joaquín has allocated, in two years of government, more than 130 million pesos to improve drainage, sanitation and potable water infrastructure for the benefit of more than 20 thousand inhabitants of Tulum, as well as to meet the demand of visitors.
Governor Carlos Joaquín strengthened the tourism promotion and worked with the North American State Department to ensure that the flow of visitors continues to reach the destinations of Quintana Roo, so that the economy continues to grow for the benefit of the people.
As a result of the above, the south of Quintana Roo is already considered as the new tourist frontier. The archaeological site of Tulum started attracting tourists in such large numbers that it eventually became a unique world-class destination in its own right, with eco-chic shops, restaurants, and hotels.
Recently, the Flightnetwork travel platform positioned Tulum as one of the five best beaches in the world, after a survey of approximately 1,200 specialists from the tourism industry.
The portal recommends travelers who choose to base their vacation south of Tulum to find a variety of lodging options, including sophisticated resorts, boutique hotels, laid-back eco-lodges, four-star accommodations and even camping sites.
The three main tourist destinations south of Tulum are the small towns of Bacalar and Mahahual, as well as the larger state capital of Chetumal, which is near the border with Belize.
USAToday points out that Chetumal is a border port city that thrives on business instead of tourism. For some travelers, this could be an advantage rather than a disadvantage since Chetumal offers authenticity. There are some places to visit, such as the Marina, the Maya Culture Museum, the City Promenade, the Manatee Sanctuary and the nearby archaeological sites of Dzibanché, Kinichná and Kohunlich.
