As vacation season is now in session, more tourists are deciding to spend their upcoming vacation days in the Mexican Caribbean.
Cancun hotel records reflect a 50 percent reservation rate for the upcoming weeks, indicating optimal hotel occupancy this Easter season.
President of the Association of Vacation and Tourist Complexes of Quintana Roo, Alberto Solis Martinez, stated that hotel occupancy is doing great this season in comparison to the first two months of the year which carried a 35 percent occupancy rate.
Martinez further said that, as of the beginning of next week, Quintana Roo anticipates approximately 20,000 hotel rooms to be reserved out of the 100 hotel branches in the region.
The reservations equally consist of people who are national and international tourists, while a majority of the international tourists are Americans. The largest number of international tourists in Quintana Roo continues to be Americans since Canadians are given strict protocols regarding travel this month, and many European areas are also implementing strict holiday travel rules.
In accordance with the large amounts of tourism taking place in the state of Quintana Roo, Martinez states that health protocols will consistently be enforced in order to ensure safety for all visitors and hotel staff.
As people are becoming more comfortable traveling, Quintana Roo continues to see an increase in visitors. “Fortunately, the figures for Easter are going up, which is very good news. Another very important point that we see is related to vaccinations in the United States, which is progressing very well, as in Mexico. That encourages people to want to go out again and obviously, it is very beneficial for the different destinations in the Mexican Caribbean,” stated Martinez.
With Easter being one of the most rejoiced holidays in Mexico, it is no surprise that international tourists are deciding to spend this holiday season in the place where the special day is highly celebrated.
