    During the Third National Pueblos Magicos Fair, Mayor Juan Carrillo received a prize for Isla Mujeres for being the first Pueblo Magico town to complete the Cadena Productiva, Plan of Production. Isla Mujeres was the first among 111 Pueblos Magicos to receive this award, which was delivered by the federal Minister of Tourism, Enrique de la Madrid Cordero.
   The Mayor said one of its commitments as a leader is to promote the tourism industry through innovative strategies that allow visitors a unique experience, with quality services, for which it is important to maintain a coordinated effort with the three levels of government through the corresponding authorities.
    He said he is committed to this work based on three fronts:  Improving the quality of tourism products and services through innovation to attract more visitors and generate more jobs; boosting the promotion and marketing of the Isla Mujeres Pueblo Magico  'brand'; and finally, the identification of the highest priorities to strengthen in the municipality's involvement in the management Program for Regional Sustainable Tourism Development and Magic Towns (Prodermagico).

A pair of lambs were turned over to the Department of Ecology and the Environment for their protection in Isla Mujeres. On social networks, a request was made for the authorities of Department Ecology and the Environment to take care of two lambs that were transported in a risky manner. The authorities responded to the call and met those who were responsible for the transfer, who turned over the animals voluntarily. The lambs were sheltered for their protection with no further damage.
