Here´s the issue....

Here´s the issue:

Zihua´s tourist sector is changing; new demographics have been emerging for a few years now, as you note. There is national tourism (big numbers, low spenders) and international tourism (low numbers, big spenders). Each has its own, distinct behavioural pattern. One example: National tourists go out for the evening starting at 10p.m. "Los gringos" are mostly in bed by that time.

In an effort to control the "all-night" bar crowd, in numbers largely, but not entirely, national tourists, City Hall wants all tables off the street (even in the daytime.) But in doing so, City Hall is trampling on an important tourist attraction for foreigners, who want to dine out-of-doors, under the stars, cobblestones underfoot, in the street! To repeat, that´s one big reason they come here.

City Hall is throwing the baby out with the bath water. They need to come up with a Plan "B," one that addresses the main problem, without creating another.
