MÉRIDA, Yucatán.- Merida will be offering additional accommodations with the opening of three new hotels in an exclusive real estate development in the north.
The City Express Hotel Chain announced the opening of more than 18 hotels this year in Mexico, including several in Merida.
The “Vía Montejo” project, a development of 240 thousand square meters, will include two new hotels.
Carol Koloz Fischer, vice-president of the National Chamber of Commerce and Touristic Services of Merida (CANACO SERVYTUR), reported that hotel occupancy at the beginning of 2015 was way above that of previous years.
“We have seen an increase in hotel occupancy, between 16 and 18 percent so far this year. Without a doubt, this is a great incentive for the industry.” He noted.
He also said that the upturn started on November last year, and will continue until the Holy Week vacation period.
“March is looking good, April and Holy Week too. Occupancy will drop after that, but that is normal. Even so, we can see that business is growing overall. Municipal and State authorities are responsible for the influx, due to their efforts and promotion programs”, Koloz Fischer highlighted.
The number of foreign visitors increased 12 per cent, making Merida a key destination.
Sefotur Yucatan reported that 1.4 million tourists visited Merida in 2014, of whom 30 per cent were foreign (approximately 400 thousand tourists).
In the northern part of Merida, in Altabrisa, a ”Junior City” is being planned, intending to position Merida as one of the most important business destinations in Southeast Mexico.
- The Touristic Promotion Secretary (Sefotur) reported that, during December of 2014, the Hotel occupation in Yucatan was 57 per cent, 4.8 higher than the same period on 2013. In February, Merida registered an occupancy rate of 62.2 per cent.
