Acapulco Makes Comeback at Tianguis Turistico

Mexico's annual Tianguis Turistico is Latin America's most important tourism and travel industry trade event,

one that different cities bid to host every year. Mexico’s first city of tourism, Acapulco, was the choice for the 48th Tianguis Turistico on April 10-12 — but its status was questionable following the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Otis in October 2023.
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador had been expected to change venues from the battered city to somewhere more stable. Ultimately, he supported Acapulco. The message was loud and clear: “Not only are we on the road to recovery, but we will return stronger than ever,” said Santos Ramirez Cuevas, secretary of tourism for Acapulco’s state of Guerrero.
The 2024 conference saw more than 35,000 appointments, with business transactions resulting in 438 million pesos (US$25.5 million), according to Miguel Torrùco Marqués, the Mexican secretary of tourism.


Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism, Miguel Torrùco Marqués, announced that over 35,000 business appointments were held, resulting in 438 million pesos (USD) generated through business transactions at the event. Torrùco said the event was attended by representatives from 43 countries, with 60 percent from within Mexico.
Top foreign sellers were the United States, Canada, Colombia and Spain. Cancun, at 49 percent, ranked as the leading preferred destination among buyers, followed by Mexico City and Acapulco (46 percent each), Los Cabos (43 percent), Riviera Maya (42 percent), Oaxaca (40 percent), Puerto Vallarta (38 percent), Riviera Nayarit (33 percent). Guadalajara and Pueblo Magicos (Magical Towns) (32 percent each).


Tepic International Airport
The new Tepic International Airport, with its terminal in the Nayarit capital of Tepic, will be completed this year. On April 16, a successful test flight from Los Angeles landed at the newly expanded airport. It will serve visitors in northern Nayarit state as well as those who currently land in Puerto Vallarta to travel to the Riviera Nayarit destinations of Punta Mita and Sayulita. A super-fast toll highway will connect visitors with inland Pueblo Magicos, including Compostela and Jala.


There is more to Mexico than its sun-splashed coastlines for beach vacations. The country’s interior states are deep in culture, festivals, inspired gastronomy, iconic spirits such as tequila and mezcal, and wine routes.
Like neighboring Guanajuato, Aguascalientes has been promoted as a leisure destination for foreign travelers. The state’s most significant event is the three-week Feria Nacional de San Marcos (San Marcos National Fair), which has attracted such internationally famed musicians as Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Sting, Rod Stewart and Christina Aguilera.
Aguascalientes’ other attractions include Mexico’s largest railway museum. The state was the birthplace of the Catrina figures used in Day of the Dead celebrations.


Tijuana – Tianguis Turistico Mexico 2025
As decided a year ago, Tianguis Turistico 2025 will be hosted by the Baja California border city of Tijuana with the support of adjacent San Diego, California. The strategic region has excellent flight connectivity to all of Mexico while taking advantage of proximity to the United States and Canada. The exact dates will be announced later in 2024.
