Hotel capacity in Yucatan has been increasing in the past years due to the continuous openings of new hotels. As reported in a recent TYT article, Merida’s Urban Development Bureau has already approved 21 licenses; however, this increase has also distributed to the rest of the state, not just in the capital. With such figures, according to Yucatán a la mano, three jobs are created for each hotel room in operation.
For instance, TecnoHotel company has just opened an accommodation centre in Progreso, Yucatan. Governor Rolando Zapata Bello recently inaugurated the TecnoHotel Casa Villamar, which has 12 rooms, snack bar service, spa, pool, and wifi. The agency is well-known for incorporating in their hotels both comfort and affordable prices in a family-and-business-like environment. “The business sector knows that investing in Yucatan is a safe bet, as businesses established here show a high demand, thus, constantly growing”, he stated.
“Great things can be achieved when the private initiative and the Government work together”, expressed the director of TecnoHotel Casa Villamar, Jorge Flores González, after recognizing that the state’s natural, historical and cultural richness make a great combination for anyone visiting.
Likewise, Yucatán a la mano noted that not only is the sector growing, but also the creation of jobs. Saúl Ancona Salazar, secretary of the Tourism Promotion Board, mentioned that approximately three jobs are generated for every hotel room; as well as indirectly benefiting suppliers, farmers, artisans, restaurant owners, among others. The hotel sector is in constant and significant growth, due to the steady advance the economy in Yucatan is having; at the moment, there are more than 13 thousand hotel rooms throughout the state.
“Although it is a slow but steady process, I calculate that in about 3 or 5 years we are going to see a strong development in the area, as also more “boutique” and “specialized hotels” are being requested, which are the ones that have a friendlier or homelike environment”.
