The beaches of Tamaulipas stood out for the quality of their water records at the national level, being the state with the best average when registering 10 MPN/100 ml, according to studies carried out by the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS).
During the current state administration, we have worked with municipalities, institutions, and international organizations to offer clean and safe destinations to visitors, said Tamaulipas Secretary of Tourism, Fernando Olivera Rocha.
The studies carried out by this regulatory agency resulted in the analysis of 2,098 seawater samples on the country’s beaches, complying with the safety guidelines established by the World Health Organization (WHO).
In this measurement, carried out before the current summer vacation period, samples were taken from 290 beaches, belonging to 75 tourist destinations located in 17 coastal states of the country.
The Tamaulipas beaches that were considered in this sampling were Miramar, Bagdad, La Pesca and Barra del Tordo, located in the municipalities of Ciudad Madero, Matamoros, Soto la Marina and Aldama, being suitable for recreational use,
Playa Miramar, the leading tourist destination in Tamaulipas, received weeks ago for the third consecutive time and for the 2022-2023 season, the international Blue Flag distinction, granted by the Foundation for Environmental Education. It was recognizing the good practices implemented in terms of cleaning, water quality, and environmental management in the destination.
During the current summer vacation season, Tamaulipas beach tourist destinations stand out for being the most chosen by visitors from various parts of the country. Thereby generating benefits and jobs for thousands of Tamaulipas families that are related to this noble sector.
