Suat Töre and Miguel Torruco Marqués

Secretary of Tourism Miguel Torruco Marqués at Tianguis Turistico 2023 answered our questions about what has changed for the Mexican travel and tourism industry since we last met with him last year in Acapulco at the Tianguis Turistico 2022 and revealed the country's tourism target for 2023.

What has changed in Mexico’s tourism since we last met at Tianguis Turistico held in Acapulco?

“We have increased our hotel capacity, we have been building about 22 thousand new hotel rooms every year. We have increased international air connectivity, especially with Istanbul. It was a very successful route that we have had since 2019 and those flights have increased a lot.

We have also increased our tourism product. There is a new tourist profile that appears after the pandemic. Now tourists are coming from different parts of the world. And they are spending more money. Last year we have received 28.4 billion dollars meaning 14 percent more than in 2019.

How many international tourists arrived last year and what is your target for this year?



Last year 39.4 million tourists visited and this year about 40 million tourists are expected to visit Mexico. In 2019, it was 45 million but since the new tourist profile is more spending, we are expecting to receive more than 31 billion dollars in revenue.
