Jalisco's Governor, Emilio Gonzalez Marquez, announced a new resort destination in Tomatlan, a municipality in Costalegre, south of Puerto Vallarta, in an area called Chalacatepec. This project, to be ultimately developed in approximately 1,200 hectares, is very similar to Cancun and, according to the governor, its environmental impact will be minimal. He also claimed that the project will provide employment for 2,100 individual.

The first phase of the project will be developed over the next few years, with an area of 400 hectares and an investment of just over $27 million dollars. The area is nestled between two natural protected areas: Chalacatepec, which has one of the most important mangroves of Jalisco.

"This is historic, extraordinary, a truly sustainable tourism project," said Gonzalez Marquez to officials and businessmen in a press conference that took place in the state’s capital, Guadalajara.
