Record Hotel Occupancy in the Riviera Maya

Hotel owners in the “Riviera Maya” determined a positive balance regarding the number of guests arriving from the United States-Canada and Europe while staying at the destination.


American visitors still represent 50% of all travelers, but now European countries have reached 30%, with a longer stay. This is a notorious advance for our destination because we have a very healthy mix of visitors from our Northamerican neighbors and Europe,” declared Manuel Paredes Mendoza, director of the Association of Hotels of the Riviera Maya.

The number of tourist arrivals have been good so far this year, and a summer minimum occupancy of 80% is been projected for this year. This will turn the Riviera Maya into the most visited destination in Mexico and the Caribbean.

If this trend continues, we are looking at a record breaking Summer. Keep in mind that last year we closed with 4.2 million visitors and we expect about 4.4 million tourists this year.” Manuel Paredes concluded.
