Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- The gay community vacationer generates an average income of $ 3,000 for each individual per day, while the general average is around $ 800 and these travelers still do not fully capture the attention as a business objective of all tourism service providers, said Roberto Lem González.
Mazatlán as a tourist port will be one of the most benefited by the approval of equal marriage in Sinaloa.
The economic spill in the tourism sector can be increased by up to 60 percent with the approval of equal marriage in Sinaloa, which will make Mazatlán the ideal destination for weddings of the LGBT community,” he said.
For this, he said, it will be necessary to work with service providers, who will be trained, seeking to adopt the idea, which will give the destination a plus.
“With this approval, more Gay clubs could be opened, festivals organized, added to this the specialization of hotels in this tenor, and other options that facilitate and make for said community, their stay in our destination a great experience”, forecast.
The business leader assured that he has knowledge of places where there is greater acceptance for this tourist line, such as Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta, which historically has established a special offer for them that in no other destination exists.
“At the Latin American level, it is estimated that 43 million travelers from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual and intersex population who visit a tourist destination are frequent walkers, so Mazatlán may be a potential area in their recruitment, according to the National Association of LGBTTI Commerce and Tourism of Mexico ”, he added.
He commented that the challenge is to consolidate Mazatlán as a GAY-FRIENDLY tourist destination since this sector also invests in the real estate sector, as well as the return of cruise ships where its passengers are members of the Gay community, it is an economic sector that could return to Mazatlan.
