According to the recent publication of REPORTUR (the most complete source of information on tourism in Latin America), the three cities of Quintana Roo that applied to be Magical Towns and that were not chosen by the federal Ministry of Tourism, will enter the new program promoted by the Secretary of Tourism of Quintana Roo called ‘Pueblos con Encanto’ (Charming Town), and Puerto Morelos will be the first one, practically at the same time that the committee that will manage it for the first time as a municipality will take office, separating it from Benito Juárez (Cancun) .
The Secretary of Tourism of Quintana Roo, Laura Fernández Piña, made it known this weekend announcing the measures that will be taken to promote it. “We will put up the first of many Pueblo con Encanto signs we hope to see across the state.”
Secretary Fernández Piña does not hide that the intention is to prepare Puerto Morelos, Holbox and Felipe Carrillo Puerto to be included in the Magic Towns list, and rejected the idea that it is a consolation prize for these tourist sites in the state.
The general guidelines for the incorporation and permanence of the Pueblos con Encanto program were published almost a month ago by the Ministry of Tourism, and it was not expected that they would be launched immediately, since in order to comply with the requirements, some conditions should be given that require investment such as access roads and placement of signage, it was also indicated that there were no resources, especially since December was the end of the fiscal year.
