Sustainable Tourism Development Zone Punta de Mita, seeking to obtain this first distinction in Mexico.

With the support of the Federal, State and Municipal governments and society, the bases and foundations that will lead Punta de Mita to obtain the Sustainable Tourism Zone Decree, the first in Mexico, are being shaped.

According to the stipulations of the Ministry of Tourism in Mexico, the Sustainable Tourism Development Zones promote the transition towards tourism sustainability schemes with a Green Economy approach, which implies improving welfare and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental and ecological risks, promoting low-carbon tourism development and harmonizing economic and environmental models to consolidate tourism activity as a source of quality employment, investment, training and development to improve the standard of living of people who live or visit this tourist destination.

The laws of Mexico, based on Article 3 Fraction XXI of the General Tourism Law, the Zones of Sustainable Tourism Development (ZDTS) are those fractions of the national territory, clearly located and geographically delimited, which due to their natural or cultural characteristics constitute a tourist attraction. These will be established through a specific declaration issued by the President of the Republic, at the request of the Ministry of Tourism.
