Governor Diego Sinhue Rodríguez has confirmed that the US-based Dream Hotel Group will open one of its five-star luxury hotels, The Chatwal, in San Miguel de Allende.

“This strengthens the concept of San Miguel as México’s best destination,” he said at a New York City event with San Miguel mayor Luis Alberto Villarreal and other state and local government officials, who were all there to formally receive Travel + Leisure magazine’s award to San Miguel as Best Destination in México.

San Miguel has held this title for two years in a row.

“Good things are coming to San Miguel de Allende,” Villarreal said. “This is a major responsibility, because despite the fact that the confidence in investment in México has decreased, there is confidence in San Miguel’s markets, and investors want to take a chance in the city. We can generate employment and economic development for the city and the region.”

At the event, Sinhue Rodríguez also said the state should build a new airport, not just for tourist flights but also for exportation of fresh food. He suggested that the airport could be constructed in the Xonotli zone, situated among the cities of Juventino Rosas, Salamanca and Villagrán, where the state owns 900 hectares. An agricultural park, El Granero del Bajío, (The Granary of the Bajío) sits next to the 900-hectare plot.

“If another airport was built, I don´t know that it could be ready in my six-year term, but at least we can plan it,” Sinhue Rodríguez said. “BJX [Del Bajío International Airport] could be for cargo. It would be a great opportunity. In 900 hectares, an airport is a great opportunity.”

Sinhue Rodríguez’s term ends in 2024.

Already, he added, state authorities are closing deals to begin direct, round-trip flights from BJX to San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas (LAS).
