In Mexico, there are currently 132 Magical Towns, which have obtained this distinction because they are places that the SECTUR describes as localities with symbolic attributes, legends, history, transcendent facts, and daily life.
The Ministry of Tourism is reviewing the requests it received from the state tourism authorities and next month it will announce which towns will be added to the list of Magical Towns.
This Monday, the Secretary of Tourism, Miguel Torruco Marqués, explained that all the Secretaries of Tourism of the states throughout the country received the call to add localities to the list of Magical Towns in a timely manner.
Those in charge of seeing which localities meet the requirements to receive the denomination of Magical Town “are already applied in this regard,” said the official at a press conference.
Torruco Marqués specified that it will be on July 14, at a meeting of tourism secretaries from all the states, when it will be announced which towns will receive the desired name.
Torruco Marqués recalled that the towns that receive the appointment increase their hotel occupancy between 6% and 8%.

Likewise, the agency recently created new denominations this year that it has already begun to grant in some localities, such as Barrio Mágico and Reinos de México.
