In addition to this, the increase in openings, renovations and brand strategy hotels, could lead to the city to live a record year, with more than 6.5 million visitors, reported in 2015, which would represent an increase of 5.0 percent.
“We are confident that we will close 2016 with record growth in visitors, hotel occupancy, economic impact and passenger arrivals by air, which will allow us to have an excellent start in 2017 and maintain the upward trend of growth target,” said the CEO of OVC Cancun, Lizzie Cole.
In a statement, she said that success has resulted from the vast range of activities and events, among which are: the Holbox Fifth Gastronomic Exhibition, “Eat, Love and Gaze”, which will take place from November 10 to 12.
New hotel investments include: Breathless Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa, which opened in May; Hyatt Ziva Cancun, whose exclusive rooms for adults started operations in July, and Temptation Resort & Spa Cancun, which can be visited from 2017.
She said that another factor that has helped positioning the destination is air connectivity, an example of that is that for the winter season approaching, several airlines announced the reactivation of flights.
Among them stand out the following routes: Bogotá-Cancun, which Interjet will offer; Kelowna- Cancun by Sunwing Airlines; Kansas City (United States) – Cancun by American Airlines and Delta Airlines, and Copenhagen (Denmark) – Cancún route, by Thomson Airways.
Therefore, Cancun has been considered among the “Top 10 Favorite Cities of Mexico” in 2016 by the online travel agency “Expedia.mx”.
“Being among the 10 favorite cities, reaffirms our commitment to maintaining our quality and service in this destination and that is one of the things that both the private sector and us worry about,” concluded Cole.
