Given the growing demand of visitors at the natural areas in San Quintin, together with the Secretariat of Sustainable Economy and Tourism we convened the first meeting for responsible tourism aimed at local and regional tourism service providers.

The goal was to provide information on the importance of good practices and recommendations to visit the protected natural areas of the bay, such as the Punta Mazo and Monte Ceniza nature reserves, as well as the wetlands of international importance.

The event was held in two parts, the first event took place in San Quintin on August 11, 2021. It was attended by 48 people from more than 20 local groups dedicated to recreational fishing, and tourism service providers. The second part was held virtually on September 6, 2021, and it was attended by 12 people from 10 groups from Baja California, in particular Tijuana, Tecate and Ensenada.

During both events, the attendees had the opportunity to express their doubts, opinions and comments, as well as proposals on ways to collaborate together to carry out responsible and sustainable tourism.

Finally, the objective of the meetings was fulfilled and it allowed us to get to know each other. We hope to continue coordinating joint actions that allow us to continue conserving the richness and beauty of San Quintin Bay.
