The most used and recognized national and international accommodation platform, Airbnb, presented the 10 destinations where its guests considered the most welcoming.

As you read in the title, the well-known "Magic Town" of Tecate in Baja California, appeared on the list thanks to the memory of the travelers who booked at Airbnb during the year 2019.

According to the number of five-star reviews received during the past year, the most welcoming cities in Mexico were:

  • Tecate, Baja California
  • Ciudad Fernández, San Luis Potosí
  • Alamos, Sonora
  • Los Mochis, Sinaloa
  • Tepotzotlán, México
  • Culiacán, Sinaloa
  • Ezequiel Montes, Querétaro
  • Coyoacán, Mexico City
  • San Luis de la Paz, Guanajuato
  • Chihuahua, Chihuahua

And how can you doubt what the guests said, if Tecate is characterized by being small, this being an advantage for those who like the tranquility and distance of big cities, but without losing that something that makes it special, unique and obviously magical.

According to Entrepreneur, during 2019, travelers who stayed in Mexico using the platform spent more than 2.8 billion dollars in the country. This figure is the result of the sum of the expenses guests made in restaurants, transportation, services, stores and lodging of the locations they visited.

However, this economic impact would not be achieved without the intervention of the hosts, who are the ones who recommend the best places to eat, shop, have fun and be entertained to each of the people who come to stay with them. The result is trust, closeness and communication.

According to a survey conducted to the hosts:

  • 82.10% recommended restaurants or cafes to their guests
  • 62.94% recommended cultural sites or activities
  • 56.11% suggested outdoor activities
  • 48.51% recommended places not so well known among tourists
  • 35.72% supported local businesses with their recommendations

Thus, despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, local tourism is moving businesses and therefore cities like Tecate can survive this crisis.
