Tourism is currently Mexico’s 5th biggest revenue source with about 7 million people working in the tourist industry. Of course, in gorgeous beach destinations like our Manzanillo Bay and Troncones, tourism provides the bulk of income for almost everyone who lives here. This makes us excited to know that tourism is expected to rise to become the 3rd biggest revenue source for Mexico by 2018, according to Bloomberg.com and quoting Tourism Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu as their primary source for these projections.
What does this mean for Posada de los Raqueros and for you, our welcome guest?
As tourism becomes more and more important to the Mexican economy, more and more federal funding will become available. Infrastructure will be upgraded while more comprehensive environmental protection laws will be enacted and enforced. The government will work to subsidize more and more international flights meaning that there will be more options – all at lower costs! And of course, with more money, our local, state and federal tourism boards will be able to promote this beautiful country and all of her cultural, natural and historical destinations. Exciting news!
We have already begun to see the benefits of the resurgence of the tourism industry. We have a new speedy road leading to Troncones from Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, buses are being replaced and refurbished and services such as cellular phone coverage and internet speed are getting better every season.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t you want to be ahead of the trend?! Come and see why Mexico is considered to be one of the fastest growing tourist, tech and industrial growth markets in the world! Or just come and see the Troncones sunset... you don’t need any economic charts to understand just how magical those are!
