Isla del Coral has become a tourism icon of Rincón de Guayabitos and it has piqued the interest of those who visit this micro-destination of the Riviera Nayarit. Because of this, training workshops were held during the first week of December for those who offer tourism services in this area.
The workshops took place on the initiative of the Rincón de Guayabitos Tourism Services Coop, together with the Compostela Hotel and Motel Association (AHMC), the Guayabitos Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and its counterpart in the Riviera Nayarit.
“We want the Isla Coral to become a tourism product for the municipality of Compostela,” said Dr. Alejandro Chávez Bustos, President of the AHMC and the Rincón de Guayabitos CVB. “We’ve been working with Conanp and the co-op simultaneously to offer a better service to our visitors.”
The 140 tourism service providers who participated in the workshop received training in product sales; service; quality; identifying the market, the client and the competition; market needs and new generations, including millennials and new technologies, as well product promotion.
The free workshops were offered by Nafinsa and sponsored by the Secretariat of Economy.
The restoration that has been taken place on the island since the start of the coral rescue project—initiated by the co-op and sponsored by the Conanp—has been a success. A no-motor-boat zone, a pier and other directives have also been implemented per best tourism practices.
