(Acapulco, El Sur 30 June) Acapulco’s Secretary of Tourism, Erika Lürs Cortés, has affirmed that Acapuco’s annual trade fair in Mexico City, called the “Acapulcazo,” was a great success, surpassing expectations based on last year’s experience. More than 10,000 visitors and 1,000 travel professionals attended the three-day event over the preceding weekend. Most visitors were from the states of Mexico, Morelos and Hidalgo. She added that most of the exhibitors, from Acapulco and surrounding communities, were looking forward to a busy and prosperous summer season. The new web page of Bonfil beach premiered at the event. Pie de la Cuesta beach distributed informational brochures about the natural beauty of that destination. The local Nautical Services Association had a show of latest jet skis and life jackets used while riding them. Several travel promoters were enthusiastic about the promotion of ecological tourism, especially in the Tres Palos lagoon, Laguna Beach and the “Mangrove Paradise,” located between Pie de la Cuesta and Coyuca.

Lührs commented that this Acapulcazo has shown the federal government, especially the federal secretary of tourism, Gloria Guevara, that Acapulco enjoys a strong base of support from over 1,000 travel professionals for the proposition that the Tianguis Turístico, Acapulco’s annual international trade fair, remain in Acapulco. She affirmed that the tourist destination that registers the greatest sales volume year round is Acapulco.
