CANCUN – The current Easter Season has been confirmed as a success for the destination. The Federal Secretariat of Tourism said that this year Easter has brought a hotel occupancy of 92 percent and it is expected to reach one hundred percent. Cancun began the week with 90 percent occupancy and by the close of Friday was 94 percent, which ensures at least 1.4 billion pesos of economic benefits for various sectors in just 15 days.
In Quintana Roo there are an estimated 93,000 hotel rooms, which have had an assured occupancy especially at Saturday and Sunday April 15-16, the days of the week, which is estimated that at least 35 thousand people arrived, many of them Mexican tourists, according to the Secretariat.
Days ago, the state’s governor, Carlos Joaquín González, estimated that it could have up to one million visitors in total, between national and international.
Quintana Roo has some 93,498 hotel rooms in operation, and for the strongest days of Easter, hotel reservations are held at 100 percent in Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Isla Mujeres, Riviera Maya, Tulum, the islands of Cozumel, Holbox and Isla Mujeres, as well as in the Riviera Maya, Mahahual, Bacalar and Chetumal. Both the Riviera Maya and Cancun are the most visited, and this impacts in a positive way for the state, by allowing the creation of at least 20 thousand temporary jobs.
The average daily money spend of national visitors is 585 pesos, which translates directly into 585 million pesos, although that could reach up to 1.4 billion pesos in just two weeks.
In an interview, the State Secretary of Tourism, Marisol Vanegas Perez, anticipated that during Easter, the state will reach almost 700 thousand tourists to stay at hotels, which are added to those who arrive at friends’ or family residences. Likewise, he said that 90 thousand visitors are contemplated to arrive from cruises, the bus stations will increase up to 30 percent their runs and the Cancun International Airport will maintain days with more than 450 operations.
