Acapulco Buffing Up for Tianguis 2019

After a successful stop in Mazatlán, Mexico’s Tianguis Turístico is ready to move back down the Pacific coast to Acapulco per the trade show’s itinerant status agreement.

The seaside city has been busy doubling-down on infrastructure improvements since it last hosted Tianguis in 2017, with one of the most notable changes being the recent expansion of the General Juan N. Airport. The new terminal added another 75,347 square feet to the old airport, boasting an eco-conscious construction and the latest in airport technology to enhance the security and experience of domestic and foreign travelers.

The renovation of the Distribuidora Barra Vieja, a secondary road which feeds into the modern Expo Mundo Imperial convention center—the host of Tianguis 2019—, is another very important change that will directly affect event attendees. The renovated lanes will further decongest the normal daily traffic of 15,000 vehicles that will no doubt be heightened by the international event, resolving traffic delays.

The multi-million-dollar investment in the city also includes renovations to the Paseo del Pescador (Fisherman’s Boardwalk), which borders Manzanillo beach. The boardwalk is one of the most traditional landmarks of Acapulco and is right next to the cruise terminal, which has been receiving more cruise guests than ever. The destination is also renovating the Las Cruces-La Garita road that welcomes visitors traveling to Acapulco by land.

All this is in addition to an ongoing investment by Grupo Autofin, the private conglomerate that launched the very popular XTASEA, the world’s largest over-the-ocean zipline that launches adrenaline-junkies over Acapulco’s Puerto Marqués Bay, and has renovated the area’s two iconic hotels: the Princess Mundo Imperial Riviera Diamante Acapulco and the Pierre Mundo Imperial. The group is also working on an eco-amusement part, a tennis stadium, and a medical center.

New developments and improvements are expected to continue through 2022.
