Queretaro continues to seek for new appointments of Magic Towns, Amealco de Bonfil and Pinal de Amoles are the Queretaro municipalities that continue in the process to obtain the appointment before the Federal Ministry of Tourism (Sectur).

However, Amealco de Bonfil is emerging as the best prospect raised by the state government, to become the sixth Magic Town in the state.

Quereatro’s Secretary of Tourism, Hugo Burgos García, explained that it could be in October when the declaration is made, within the framework of the National Fair of Magic Towns (Feria Nacional de Pueblos Mágicos), which will take place in Michoacán from October 11 to 14.

Amealco is a historic municipality that brings together tradition, culture, cuisine and architecture among other attractions.

SECTUR has received around 90 applications  from destinations all over the country that seek to get the appointment of Pueblo Mágico; however, it is expected that only eight to nine designations will be issued.

As for the permanence of the other five denominations in the state, Burgos García ruled out that there is a risk of losing the Magic Town hallmark.

Bernal, Tequisquiapan, Jalpan de Serra, Cadereyta de Montes and San Joaquín are the municipalities that have the appointment.

“We have no risk until now. Our state administration has corrected the irregularities at these municipalities and at this time there is no risk of losing any of the five desgnations, in fact, the idea is to achieve one or two new Magical Towns” he said.amealco

Two tourism related projects will be completed by December this year in Querétaro:

The Malecón in Jalpan de Serra reports an advance of 80%, while in the Island of Tzibanzá the advance is between 40 and 50%.
During the weekend of national holidays, the Ministry of Tourism expects an economic spill of 90 million pesos and some 20,000 visitors. These indicators represent a growth of 13.6% in comparison to the previous year.

Queretaro and Guanajuato, are the two most representative states as tourist destinations in this season of patriotic celebrations.

Holy Week and the commemoration of the Independence of Mexico are among the seasons with the greatest attraction of visitors to the state.
