With these figures, the head of SECTUR reaffirmed that the Tianguis Turistico de la Ciudad de Mexico broke all records in the event's history. There were 90 participating countries, two more than the highest number previously recorded in Acapulco in 2017.

The six most offered products were cultural, nature, adventure, sun and beach, gastronomic, and meetings tourism which returned to the top spots after disappearing because of the pandemic.

"The benefits of this Tianguis Turistico will be reflected by the end of 2023, especially in foreign exchange and per capita spending, as we expect a historical figure of more than $31 billion," concluded the official.
