Campeche receives WTTC Secure Travel Stamp
Now the Yucatan Peninsula is the first tourist corridor in Latin America to apply the protocols of the World Travel and Tourism Council
In this way, the states of Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo integrate the first tourist corridor of Mexico and Latin America, that is, a “bubble” that will apply all the measures for the health care of travelers and tourism service providers.
The WTTC protocols were developed following the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and is supported by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and more than 200 CEOs of the main business groups in the sector around the world
It is important to note that this seal seeks to generate greater confidence in tourists, once the authorities of each entity determine the opening of their destinations. It is the responsibility of the governments and companies that receive the Secure Travel Seal to supervise compliance with the WTTC protocols.
"We are pleased that Campeche joins the global actions that will provide security and confidence to tourists in the new normality of tourism. We are sure that the approval of measures and the coordinated work of authorities and representatives of the private sector will yield positive results to contribute to the orderly and safe revival of tourism, ”said Gloria Guevara Manzo, President and CEO of the WTTC.
“The good news is that Campeche joins its neighboring states of Yucatan and Quintana Roo, which together will form the first tourist corridor of its kind in Latin America. This model has given excellent results in the process of safely reopening tourism in other regions. It is now up to the state authorities to be vigilant of strict compliance with protocols to achieve the new normal in travel and tourism, "she explained.
Carlos Miguel Aysa González, Governor of the State of Campeche, said that “tourism is a very important economic activity for the state, during my administration we have implemented a strategy for promoting tourism products aimed at national and international markets. The health crisis has generated radical changes in the way of doing tourism and Campeche is ready for the new normal, with procedures to generate trust among tourists. I want to thank the World Travel and Tourism Council for certifying our state, which commits us to continue working on behalf of campechanos and our visitors. ”
For his part, Jorge Manos Esparragoza, Secretary of Tourism of the entity, stressed that “Campeche is a destination that has great natural and cultural riches, excellent gastronomy, crafts, history and people willing to be the best hosts. The health crisis forces us to reinvent ourselves as a destination, to guarantee the health of the population and visitors, so we work in coordination with health authorities and businessmen to apply protocols for the new normality. "
Campeche offers a unique travel experience with important tourist attractions, such as the historic city center of San Francisco de Campeche and its wall, which are a World Heritage Site, the bastions, the archaeological zones of Calakmul and Edzná, as well as the reserve from the biosphere of Los Petenes, Palizada, Isla Aguada, Isla Arena and the caves of Xtacumbilxunaan, in addition to its gastronomy.
The Global Security Seal and the new safe travel protocols announced by the World Travel and Tourism Council will allow to recover the tourist activity affected by the ravages of Covid-19.
