The secretary of Tourism of Quintana Roo, Marisol Vanegas Perez, admitted that the state government plans to invest 150 million pesos in improving the numbers of visitors after less American tourists arrived at the destination in the season, although an increase of 3.3% has been registered in tourism activity .
After cleaning the sargassum of the beaches, these are once again the main attraction.
The official said that in order to reverse the situation, more than 45,000 travel agents are working in the organization of caravans, seminars and shows, because it is expected that the December season exceeds all expectations.
In any case, Vanegas Pérez points out, the season in general throughout the State has been good, despite the massive arrival of sargassum to the coasts. “The summer season has been one of the best in the last 10 years,” she said.
He said that in the first semester the number of passengers arriving by air increased 7 percent, although with shorter stays.
Quintana Roo will invest 150 million pesos to recover the massive income of North American tourists in several ways. Cancun authorities promised the US Consul clean beaches and greater security, according to the travel news website Reportur.mx.
The sharp decline of US tourism, the most important issuing market for the Mexican Caribbean, has lit the warning lights in the sector since the beginning of the year, but the situation was accentuated because more US tourists are traveling abroad, but less choose Mexico.
