Sinaloa and Yucatan will promote destinations with innovation and technology


Sinaloa and Yucatan join the list of pioneering Mexican states in using technology and innovation to promote their tourist attractions and main destinations, according to the Airbnb platform.

In a statement, the company dedicated to offering low-cost accommodation to individuals and tourists reported that since June 1, 2018, agreements signed by the governments of Sinaloa and Yucatan went into effect, in order to collect 3.0% lodging tax before the Secretaria de Hacienda y Crédito Público (Mexican IRS).

The hosting platform connects travelers looking for a new experience, with hosts that have space available for rent, and seek extra sources of income.

The statement added that the AIRBNB community in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, in partnership with the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP) and local hoteliers, organized a beach cleanup in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, with more than 100 volunteers.
