Quintana Roo works four tourism programs around the Mayan Train

Acapulco Guerrero. In Quintana Roo, four tourism development programs are currently being developed around the Mayan Train, with a focus on areas such as Tulum and the south of the state, with the aim of attracting more travelers and spending foreign currency in the region.

In this regard, Bernardo Cueto, secretary of state tourism, said that these programs are worked at the state level hand in hand with the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism (Fonatur) to produce products around the stations that will make up the work in the entity, scheduled to be completed by the end of next year.

“Tourism programs are being developed in the areas where the Mayan Train will have an impact, especially in areas where there will be stations,” Cueto told the media during the inauguration of the 2022 Tourist Tianguis.

“There are programs channeled, like the one in Tulum, Río Hondo, programs that are about to start. It is necessary to anticipate that this impact generates a greater spill, and there is a tourist product so that this spill reaches the entire population,” he added.

Previously, the secretary of tourism, Miguel Torruco, reported the delivery of a proposal for 62 package options and tours through the Mayan Train stations, which considered, in addition to Quintana Roo, the stations in Yucatan, Campeche, Chiapas and Tabasco. .

“The suggestion is based on the infrastructure, products, services, communities and territories, which through 112 attractions or complementary destinations of cultural and nature tourism, allows to identify the points of tourist interest to choose stays of one to three nights in the zone of each of the stations of the Mayan Train”, said the secretary quoted in a statement from mid-2021.

In addition, it is sought that part of the products to be generated feed travelers to segments such as meeting tourism, romance, health, wellness and retirement.

Regarding the problem of insecurity that prevails in the state, the secretary of tourism affirmed that they are working on programs to find alternatives, and that the situation does not affect the behavior of travelers, despite the fact that the perception of public insecurity in destinations such as Cancun is higher than the national average, according to data from the National Urban Public Security Survey as of last March.

“There are security issues that are being addressed. Today we spoke with Conago about tourist security, and about all the actions that Quintana Roo has undertaken to maintain the safety of our tourists and visitors, of the population. It is being attended to and by the numbers it has not represented an obstacle for millions of tourists to continue visiting the Mexican Caribbean”, he affirmed.
