Inclusive tourism development in Mexico

Mexico’s well-established model of tourism development has benefited from significant public investment to successfully leverage the country’s natural climate and coastline endowment over the last four decades. This model is now maturing, and is vulnerable to challenge from changing consumer demand patterns, environmental considerations and competitiveness issues. It is also unlikely that this model can support tourism policy objectives to promote more inclusive and sustainable growth. This chapter considers a future growth path for tourism in Mexico and focuses on destination development and product diversification. It examines strategies to better spread the benefits of tourism, improve the overall tourism offer, promote regional development and widen employment opportunities.
