The Mexico State government, working with the Tourism Secretariat (Sectur) and the Commission for the Development of Tourism in the Teotihuacán Valley (Covate), will provide support and training for operators in the tourism sector in the municipalities of Acolman, Teotihuacán, San Martín de las Pirámides, Otumba, Axapusco and Nopaltepec.
Covate General Director Francisco de la Vega Aragón said that, to better serve visitors to the area, the state government will, together with the National Anthropology and History Institute (INAH), provide training courses to 321 local tour guides so they can provide accurate information on the area’s temples and historic buildings.
Vega Aragón said that these municipalities will also receive support in organizing festivals, cultural events and the sale of traditional handicrafts.
He went on to say that the state government and Sectur are also working to provide tourism information at all of the cultural events. According to Vega Aragón, these actions fulfill the promise of the state government to promote the development of tourism in the region, with the goal of positioning Mexico State as one of the country’s principal travel destinations.
