Special events and new construction hold positive outlook for Cancun
Cancun – The Cancun Convention & Visitors Bureau has announced a series of events to provide visitors with unique experiences that will create memorable vacations for all of them.
“Throughout the years, Cancun has become synonymous with world-class entertainment and one-of-a-kind travel experiences,” said Lizzie Cole, CEO of the Cancun CVB. “Our destination is fully committed to continuing to offer an appealing array of events and experiences for our visitors to choose from. We look forward to continue promoting this culturally-rich and diverse destination and extend our growth in 2017.”
Cole also noted there are several projects under way, including the addition of new hotels and airport improvements. To help continue to ease travel for visitors from across the U.S. and Canada throughout 2017, the Cancun International Airport is currently working on the addition of a new terminal and an integrated 126-room property, slated for completion in 2017 and 2018 respectively. The airport has also seen a rise in flights from the U.S. this past year due to the lift in flight restrictions established by the U.S. and Mexican government in August 2016.
