In Progreso, more than 40,000 visitors were registered.
Progreso registered this Sunday April 21st a massive wave of visitors, with more than 40 thousand people on the “Malecón” area and nearly 100 thousand throughout the municipality, which favored hotel occupancy, which was between 80 and 100 percent, during the weekend.
Hundreds of vacationers began to arrive at the port before 10:00 a.m., which soon caused the “Malecón” to look overcrowded. The visitors settled along the public spaces, some set up tents, umbrellas and other shade structures so they could enjoy the cool breeze on a day of intense heat, which was ideal for fun on the beach.
The large number of visitors, especially Mexican nationals, closed a spectacular weekend for the port of Progreso, which concentrated about 50,000 people in a four-day, according to preliminary figures, which directly benefited the entire tourism sector, both established businesses and street vendors.
The estimated number of visitors on the weekend at the port, according to data from the SSP was more than 100,000 people, between tourist areas such as the Malecón and El Corchito, as well as Yucalpetén, Chuburná, Chelem and Chicxulub Puerto, allowing significant local economic activation.
The security forces involved in the operation “Holy Week” have reported a white balance, so far, thanks to the increased surveillance in the areas of largest influx, by coordinated efforts between state and municipal police forces.
Surveillance, lifeguard services, and first aid were provided by Navy, Red Cross, and Tourist Police personnel in the beach areas. Surveillance at sea has also been of great value, with units from the Navy and Ecological Police.
