Many national tourists, upon seeing that Acapulco was not available, opted for other destinations such as Mérida.

Meanwhile, David Escalante, president of the Association of Tourism Promotion Agencies of Yucatán , December showed positive figures as normally happens in this season . “I would dare to say that it was better than December 2022. It is very likely that many national tourists, upon seeing that Acapulco was not available, opted for Mérida but we do not have a metric of how many may have come to the state for that reason,” he stated.

Although the hotel sector continues to count figures on the occupancy recorded in the past December holidays , its president, Juan José Martín Pacheco estimates a slight increase in visitors.

According to information provided by airport authorities, the number of passengers at the airport exceeded last year’s figures by more than 19 percent, going from 3 million 92 thousand passengers to 3 million 702 thousand.

The director of ASUR explained that the Mérida international airport has the capacity to receive up to 4.2 million passengers in a year , and the great potential that the state is having will surely allow it to continue with this expansion, he added.
