After the English Consulate was inaugurated in Cancun, bonds were tightened to make the relationship in touristic and commercial matters stronger; this represents currently the main touristic market from Europe to Quintana Roo, followed by the Spain, German, Italian and French markets.

Andrade Angulo added that the importance in this market for the state lies mainly in the fact that the average stay is 15 nights per traveler; with a spending range of approximately 2,900 euro each, which places them as a high spending market segment.

The Secretary of Tourism added that most of the British citizens that travel to Quintana Roo come from London, Birmingham and Glasgow.
