I would agree the program was probably a money maker for a bunch of politicians and other crooks.  Look how the local people rushed to spend the money that was allocated to San Carlos to compete for the designation.
It may be very difficult to determine how much tourism has increased in any of the towns with the Pueblo Escenico designation.  How could they prove tourists visited for that reason as opposed to just going to that town because they heard it was pretty, with historical buildings?  Or it was on their way to another destination?
I support AMLO’s decision to do away with the program, in an effort to reduce opportunities for corruption.
