“During 2016, at least 3,100 people visited the touristic routes, and we are expecting an increase of at least 10% for this year on this figure,” Gonzalez underlined.

Guadalupe González concluded: “We are expecting the arrival of new important hotel firms, some of them have already opened in our city, therefore the number of rooms is going to increase this year, and we are facing a very important challenge.
