Acapulco tourism authorities will welcome the return of Tianguis Turistico in 2017, Mexico’s major travel trade show.

“We are proud of the return of Tianguis to Acapulco because it shows that we have what it takes, that we have the trust of the federal tourism authorities and of the industry and it enables us to showcase all the positive factors that differentiate Acapulco and that deserve attention,” said Ernesto Rodriguez Escalona, secretary of tourism of the state of Guerrero, in a release. “The event will give us the opportunity to show an improved infrastructure and world-class tourist offering.”

Looking forward for Acapulco, Posadas Group has invested more than $85M and is beginning the construction of Fiesta Americana Grand Acapulco Diamante. Also, the Mayan Palace Playa will be opening with 180 rooms, as well as the La Plaza commercial building with a gourmet market and boutique. Mundo Imperial Resorts has acquired the Princess Acapulco and Pierre Marquez, and the city will also debut a new airport terminal.

Security is also being increased. The Gendarmeria police force, a special division of the Federal Police, has been assigned to patrol Acapulco. The destination has also created the Tourist Information and Assistance Center to provide resources and assistance to visitors.
