Governor Roberto Borge Angulo confirmed, that the hotels in the main tourist destinations in Quintana Roo will be completely full during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
“We are beginning the most popular season of the year, with projections of full capacity at destinations like Cancun, Puerto Morelos and the Maya Riviera, as well as destinations with over 85 percent capacity like Holbox, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres and the south of the state,” Borge said.
The governor declared that, according to the figures from the Tourism Secretariat (Sedetur), there have been cases of overbooking rooms in hotels in Cancun and the Maya Riviera. This will also benefit other tourist centers in the state because thousands of visitors will have to find lodging alternatives.
“This is the result of intense promotions carried out at tourist fairs in Mexico and abroad, with the support of President Enrique Peña Nieto, entrepreneurs, and with the effort to increase connections with Mexican airports and foreign hubs like Panama, Lima, Santiago de Chile, Europe and the East Coast of the United States,” he said.
Borge Angulo said that the winter season is “excellent” with everything full during the holidays in more that 80,000 hotels in Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Holbox, the Maya Rivera and the Maya coast.
“We expect visitors from the United States, Canada and from other parts of Mexico to enjoy their vacations at beaches, malls and the main tourist attractions. This vacation season will have an important economic impact that will benefit not just service provid- ers, but also the workers and families of Quintana Roo,” he explained.
Sedetur member Laura Fernández Piña said that on Friday the national tourism spike began in the state and will conclude in the first week of January.
Ercé Barrón Barrera, director of Integral Port Administration in Quintana Roo, said that in comparison with 2014, they expect a 2 percent increase in demand for maritime travel.
