Coahuila will be the first entity in the country to regulate the digital platform Airbnb, which offers private homes for rent, because they do not comply with what they offer to travelers through their promotional videos and photographs, but mainly in terms of security .

"In Coahuila, it will be sought that service providers and those who offer their rental properties have an even floor in compliance with the law and the payment of taxes, as well as rights and obligations," assured the Secretary of State Tourism, Guadalupe Oyervides.

The state official said that maximum in a week will take the initiative, which seeks to reform more than 70 percent of the General Law of Tourism, to send it to the State Congress for review and, where appropriate, approval, to begin regulate these businesses.

He added that more than regularization in the payment of taxes of the Airbnb, it is necessary to guarantee the security of those who lease the properties that are promoted through this digital platform.

In addition, it seeks to have an exact record of how many providers of this service there are in the entity, where they are located, who their owners are, as well as who leases them.

Apart from that they must be reviewed by the authorities of Civil Protection, as is done with hotels and motels throughout the state, because the "floor must be even".

But they will also be obliged to comply with everything they offer tourists who come to Coahuila and who choose their services. "They will not be allowed to cheat visitors."

He commented that this is not necessary only a point of agreement in the State Congress, because it takes more than that: a law that regulates them.
