    El turismo está cobrando una gran dinámica. Y efectivamente, junto con las plazas donde está la industria maquiladora, que son todas las plazas fronterizas, que prácticamente están a empleo completo, lo están también las plazas de turismo.

    ¿Qué quiere decir la segunda oracion?

    "Maquiladora" is the same word in English and Spanish. This is the definition from the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

    Maquiladora: a foreign-owned factory in Mexico at which imported parts are assembled by lower-paid workers into products for export.
    Source: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/maquiladora

    The second phrase means that the tourism hot spots are usually located in the same spots as the "maquiladoras", near the border.

    Note: This is not a translation, but should help you figure one out.
    Next time, remember to include a context and a try in your post. See Rules for posting.
