According to the mayor of Tekax, Diego Ávila, the fact that the municipality he governs has obtained the Magical Town designation will facilitate the arrival of investors, especially for making improvements that are in line with this distinction.
In that sense, the mayor stated that with the designation, strategic projects should be worked on to boost the municipality’s economy. Therefore, they are seeking more investments and economic benefits that will benefit the residents of the municipal center and its surrounding communities.
He recalled that this program previously provided federal resources to maintain facades and the image of the main area of these Pueblos Mágicos, but that is no longer the case today. Therefore, this distinction should guarantee investment in Tekax, especially because the city is a rough diamond that has been gradually polished.
He added that there is currently a significant investment being made in the Municipal Market, and they also plan to intervene in the children’s park in the area. However, other tourism projects require resources, such as a pedestrian walkway from the Historic Center to La Ermita and the implementation of stamped concrete.
He mentioned that an estimated 100 million pesos are needed for the execution of the walkway, stamping, and other adjustments alone. Tekax doesn’t have that amount of resources, but they will work to obtain the necessary funds and gradually transform the municipality to live up to its recent designation as a Pueblo Mágico.
