This market represents 16% of the total tourism arriving to Los Cabos, being Chicago its main source market for tourists in this segment.
During his participation in the Tianguis Turístico de Acapulco, the director of the Los Cabos Tourism Trust, Rodrigo Esponda, received the allusive plaque from the founder of Queer Destinations, Oriol Pàmies, making Los Cabos the first destination to be accredited with the distinction.
“We celebrate the Queer Destinations accreditation, which symbolizes their commitment to ensure the best safety conditions to welcome the LGBTQ+ community in an inclusive and respectful way during their stay,” said Rodrigo Esponda, general director of the Los Cabos Tourism Trust.
Queer Destinations is an international quality label endorsed by the IGLTA (International LGBTQ+ Travel Association) that is awarded to destinations (Committed Destination) and companies (Committed Entity) that want to attract the LGBTQ+ segment.
To do so, a training process must be completed in which first a letter of commitment from the destination/company is signed, service providers are sensitized, a strategy focused on the segment is developed and a minimum number of products for the LGBTQ+ community is ensured.
