“That is why we have taken tourism as one of the main aspects of our Government and as an example of this, we closed with historical numbers in 2019, the highest number of visitors in our history, the highest number of tourist arrivals by cruise ship, the largest increase in the Mérida city airport and the largest number of visits to archaeological sites, however the arrival of the pandemic and the passage of 5 natural phenomena put us a new challenge”, shared the Governor.

“If we combine all these conditions that are being generated in Yucatán with the natural beauties that we have, with the quality of our people and with our qualified workforce, without a doubt, Yucatán can be a tourist powerhouse in the next 10 years ”, stated Vila Dosal.
Finally, the Governor invited businessmen to take care of the positive economic reactivation that is taking place in Yucatan with joint responsibility and to continue implementing sanitary measures, protecting each other.
