The governor of Yucatan said: “we are on the right track in terms of tourism development”.

Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal says that the appointment of Mérida as number one small city in the world by the prestigious Reader’s Choice Awards 2019 of the Condé Nast Traveler magazine “is a recognition for all Yucatecans”.

“The shole world is talking about Merida, about the Yucatan,” said Vila Dosal: “the hospitality of its people, its architectural wonders; our gastronomy and natural beauties. As a Government, we must continue to promote the State, since tourism is a source of employment for thousands of Yucatecans. ”

This promotion effort is reflected in a good number of international recognitions, such as the one recently made by Reader’s Choice Awards 2019 by Condé Nast Traveler by naming Merida the best city in the world in the category of small cities. “This worldwide recognition shows us that we are on the right track in terms of tourism development.”

“More travelers will want to visit us, which will result in more and better jobs for the people of our state. Yucatecans are excellent hosts and the world is talking about us now. Mérida is, according to the thousands of readers of Condé Nast Traveler, the best small city in the world, ” the governor added.

Condé Nast Traveler is an editorial group with presence in more than 28 countries; For more than 30 years this magazine has published a special edition in which its readers vote for their favorite destinations.

This year, the Yucatecan capital obtained more votes than important European and American cities such as Dresden, Germany; Québec, Canada; Salzburg, Austria, and Florence, Italy; (just to name a few).
