"Pueblos Mágicos" program

ballet Amalia Hernandez in Mexico CityThe Mexican government supports the development of small cities with strong tourist potential thanks to the program Pueblos Mágicos (Magical villages).
Right now, there are 83 cities or villages located in the all states of Mexico participating in this program. This program consists of promoting these tourists destinations with strategic projects to consolidate the competitive capacity. In 2007, the federal, state and local governments awarded important funds to improve the urban infrastructure, the facilities, to restore the sites of interest and to develop the tourist information.

This program tends to emphasize the Mexican heritage through folklore, gastronomy, music, dances, craft, adventure, extreme sports, the day to day of rural life, the architecture and urban environment. It is a strategy of development off the traditional tourist circuits. These cities or villages are located close to tourist sites, with easy road access and show a historic and/or religious value or signification.

Touristic informations in Mexico


hammocks of Yucatán Most of the tourist cities have either a State Visitor Center or a City Visitor Center. The staff is generally very welcoming; you will meet at least one English-speaking employee; you will be able to obtain maps and brochures.

In Mexico City, you can contact the Mexico Ministry of Tourism Portal, called Sectur - 55-50 89 75 00 / 01 800 006 88 39 or the 078 open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, all year long. For information or help (In Spanish and English), you can also consult this multilingual site : www.visitmexico.com.

On the site : www.sectur.gob.mx, you will find the web site listing of the Mexican State Tourist Secretariat Offices. Some sites are in Spanish and English. But if you write to them using the electronic address they mention, you will have very few answers; it is really a pity ! When you log on to one of these sites, click on the tourism section (turismo).
