 On Friday the Agreement to Install the Pueblo Magico Production Chain was signed

Isla Mujeres was the first of the 28 new Pueblo Magicos to sign the  Acta de Acuerdo de Instalación de la Cadena Productiva del Pueblo Mágico / Agreement to Install the Pueblo Magico Production Chain, which occurred on Friday.
       In previous days, entrepreneurs participated in training workshops to develop strategies and collaborations to improve the competitiveness of local businesses for the benefit of everyone in the 'chain'. Goals include improving the quality of tourism products and services, innovation in the range of activities to encourage a substantial increase in spending, employment, and occupancy, as well as the promotion of better marketing systems for more modern and direct sales to offer Isla Mujeres as a Pueblo Magico to tourists. Other objectives include developing and maintaining  a system of knowledge about tourism consumerism, which is key to identifying, quantitatively and qualitatively, the essential values to guide the implementation of the 'chain'.
       Goals also include identifying the needs for infrastructure and equipment, and the technical assistance that is needed; promotion of the island's culture and natural attributes in a manner that is safe and incorporates tourism studies, diagnostics, research, and transfer of technology with specialized tourism training; as well as other works and services that are required to manage the assistance provided by PRODERMAGICO. And finally, to develop and promote an annual operating program to manage this within a framework of sustainability. 
    Those who were present at the signing included  Guadalupe Araceli Martínez Márquez, de la Asociación de Hoteles; Felipa de Jesús Díaz Sánchez, de los Centros de Salud y Bienestar; Cecilia Marín Ávila, de las Mujeres Artesanas; René Contreras Gómez, de las arrendadoras de carritos de golf; Juan José Carrillo Figueroa, de la CANACO; Reyes Baltazar Maldonado, de la CANIRAC; Leonel Povedano Castillo, de la Asociación de Pequeños Hoteles; Marcelo Cupul Cu, de la Asociación de Permisionarios de Tiburón Ballena; Misael Fernando Estermann, de la Asociación de Submarinos Aktun Ha y Gerardo Magaña Barragán, del Comité de Isla Mujeres Pueblo Mágico.

The season will continue until September 17, over the enlarged area of 633,398 hectares. The largest number of whale sharks is expected in July and August, according to data from recent seasons, as reported by the CONANP (National Commission for Natural Protected Areas)
