Cancun continues to experience strong travel demand from its American visitors as summer approaches and Mexico progresses in COVID-19 vaccination programs for its residents.
Online travel agency, CheapOair shared a report which revealed the growing number of tickets booked to Cancun for the summer. The high demand has ranked Cancun as the top Caribbean vacation destination among the U.S. traveler base.
As hotels and travel hubs located in Cancun continue to experience sizable demand, the city is trending as the third most popular destination for Americans after Miami and Las Vegas.
Sam Jain, CEO of CheapOair’s parent company, Fareportal disclosed numbers regarding the increase in the number of American passengers in the month of March.
“According to data from the TSA, passengers going through US airports in March are consistently over 1,000,000 per day. That’s a significant increase over just one month ago and demonstrates America’s growing willingness to travel,” stated Sam Jain.
With Mexico maintaining more lenient restrictions regarding COVID-19 testing and quarantines, the country attracts many of the rising numbers of American passengers looking for a getaway.
Meanwhile, Mexico is anxious in accelerating its vaccination program for residents to combat the risks of COVID-19. The government of Mexico has recently stated that vaccine programs will expand throughout the country.
Although the country is doing well in curbing the spread of COVID-19 in comparison to previous months, the government aims to increase the number of daily vaccinations with the additional supplies of vaccines arriving into the country from Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Sinovac, and Sputnik V.
“Although the number of infections is going down, we have to hurry to vaccinate so that if there is a regrowth, a third wave, it will catch us vaccinated,” stated President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
