Acapulco, México (Mexico Cities)

Mexico’s tourism industry has come together with state officials in Guerrero to offer a discount of 30- to 50-percent off on accommodations and food to people visiting the cities of Acapulco and Ixtapa Zihuatanejo over the next three months.

The announcement is intended to motivate tourism from Mexico City, Puebla, Morelos and state of Mexico, where a devastating 7.1-earthquake killed hundreds last month.

“The discount program offered to attract visitors will be absorbed 100 percent by hotel companies and tourism service providers,” President of the Association of Hotels and Companies in Acapulco Jorge Laurel González said. “We are offering packages that will include transport, food and lodging at low costs, with the intention of supporting the arrival of visitors during this difficult time.”

Secretary of Tourism of Guerrero, Ernesto Rodríguez Escalona, held a press conference in which he also announced a collection center where the Acapulco tourist sector can make donations for those effected by the earthquake.
