Thanks to the materialization of 39 projects for the tourism sector left by former governor Carlos Caicedo and continued by Governor Rafael Martínez, the department went from 11th place in 2019 to 7th place in 2023 in the Tourism Competitiveness Index.

This important event, which seeks to promote sustainable tourism in Latin America and the Caribbean, was attended by tourism representatives from South American countries and national government officials.

The structure to continue positioning the department’s tourism agenda is another legacy of the management of former governor Carlos Caicedo, who proposed a futuristic plan with 39 projects for this sector, of which the Macondo Tourist Route stands out, which benefits 10 municipalities; In addition, the revitalization of the Puebloviejo Tourist Parador.

“We participate and socialize each of the actions and projects inherited from former Governor Caicedo that have led Magdalena to consolidate itself as a highly competitive destination in the country. We received the support and approval of the representatives of South American tourism who described all the initiatives as innovative,” said Eduardo Brito, head of the department’s tourism office.

The Development Plan ’12+1 Route of Change to overcome poverty’ of Governor Rafael Martínez, in addition to contemplating these actions, includes continuing with issues such as the Macondo Train, which will serve to generate greater sources of employment, an initiative that was applauded by the Ministry of Transportation.

From the Government of Change with Results we work so that tourism in this territory is sustainable and with a regenerative, rural and community focus. The above, to preserve nature and life so that future generations can enjoy these environments.
