The president of the Mexican Association of Hoteliers of Yucatan, Héctor Navarrete Medina, considered feasible to develop a “hotel zone” along the coast of Yucatán, in order to satisfy the growing tourism demand.
The zone considered is on the coastline that goes from Sisal to Telchac Puerto, although this has not been officially determined, until the authorities conduct the corresponding environmental impact studies.
“It is definitely viable that Yucatan could have a hotel zone, because it is proven that many tourists visit the beach destinations of the state, and they expect a bigger and more robust hotel infrastructure in the area, and this is relevant for the state’s economy,” said Navarrete Medina.
He assured that in the state, the environmental and government authorities are already carryig out the corresponding analysis to determine where the most viable place on the Yucatan coast could be, to develop this project.
It is worth mentioning that the same association of hoteliers presented the project to the Tourist Business Council of Yucatan (Cetur) last April.
At that time the president of Cetur, Jorge Escalante Bolio, said that the proposal is not new, since there has been previous interest in the development of the Yucatán’s coastline for hotel purposes.
In this regard, Navarrete Medina said that it is an ambitious project which would enhance tourism strategies and therefore increase the number of visitors from across the country and the rest of the world to the Yucatecan coast and the rest of the state as well.
According to SIPSE, the accommodation offer of the Yucatan Peninsula added almost 34,000 new hotel rooms, between 2017 and 2019, of which the vast majority are located in the northern area of Quintana Roo (Cancun and Riviera Maya).
Navarrete Medina said that 29 hotels are projected in the state capital, which would result in approximately 2,500 new rooms in Merida. The construction of most of these hotels began this year, and many will be inaugurated between the end of 2018 and the first semester of 2019, with an estimated investment of 2 billion pesos.
