In a statement, the Tourism Secretariat said that Mexico shows this year its leadership in cruise vacations by receiving 2,286 cruise ships and serving 6.4 million visitors in 14 ports. Cozumel, Quintana Roo, will be the maritime terminal with greatest movement on a global scale.

The agency reported that in 2015, the FCCA reported a movement in Mexico of 5.5 million passengers, while in 2016 the influx increased to 6.1 million. This year it is foreseen a growth of 4.9 percent to a total of 6.4 million cruisers.

“As a destination — and according to the projections of the FCCA — Cozumel will register this year an influx of 3,607,885 passengers; Representing 181,184 passengers more than in 2016, when it captured 3,426,701 people,” said the head of the unit, Marisol Vanegas Perez.

“We celebrate the leadership of Cozumel in the matter of cruises, we want to stay in this position and, through the public policy implemented in the administration of Governor Carlos Joaquin González, contribute to reducing inequalities and generating more and better opportunities for all,” added Vanegas Pérez.

After Mexico, the FCCA indicate that Bahamas will occupy the second largest site with 4.4 million passengers, in third place the United States with 2.1 million; Puerto Rico with 1.5 million; St. Maarten and Jamaica with 1.5 million; Cayman Islands, 1.4 million, and Dominican Republic with one million cruisers.
