Updating our snapshot of travel and tourism in Mexico. Planeta.com features links to official tourism portals at federal, state, and local levels. Are websites updated? Are social web channels used? = Actualizando nuestra coberatura de viajes y turismo en México. Indexaremos los portales de turismo del gobierno a nivel federal, estatal y local. ¿Están actualizados los sitios web? ¿Se utilizan canales de redes sociales?

Status report: There is a lot of turnover and some some sites are dead while others are not updated.

What would we like to see from Mexico’s new tourism portal? Media releases. Multilingual info. Upcoming events. Virtual tours. Online concierge. Local tourism providers, guides, cooking classes, Spanish language classes. Social web channels for state and local tourism portals.

The role of travel and tourism needs to be re-evaluated – what works and not work for locals and visitors. It cannot just be an issue of ‘bums on seats’ but rather the engagement of the cultural and social lives of those directly and indirectly impacted.

The new administration is raising and changing expectations. How travel and tourism contribute to the well-being of locals and visitors is the goal by which we will measure impact.

On a modest level, we would like to inventory the government’s own tourism portals at the federal, state, and local levels. Are the websites updated? Are social web channels being used? There’s frequently a change in domain names with new administrations and candidly, it’s a never-ending chore of staying informed of where to look for current info.

We also request transparency and multilingualism, particularly important as we approach the International Decade of Indigenous Languages. For Planeta.com, the allure of travel in Mexico is meeting Mexicans.
