Cancun hoteliers say the conflict between Mexico and Ecuador will impact tourism

The closure of the Mexican embassy could leave Ecuadorian tourists who want to travel to Quintana Roo destinations without visas.

Cancun hoteliers fear that the diplomatic conflict between Mexico and Ecuador will damage the flow of tourists to the Mexican Caribbean, with the South American country being one of the destination’s five main markets in that region.

Within the framework of the Tianguis Turístico 2024 in Acapulco, Jesús Almaguer Salazar, president of the Hotel Association of Cancún, Puerto Morelos, and Isla Mujeres, reported on the preoccupation of Ecuadorian wholesale travel agencies, who expressed their concern about the closure of the Mexican representation in Ecuador due to the diplomatic conflict.

Almaguer urged the Mexican government to resolve the situation to avoid any harm to the tourism sector, pointing out the importance of having an embassy or consulate to facilitate the process of obtaining visas for Ecuadorians who wish to visit Mexico.

The hotel leader expressed his confidence in a prompt resolution of the conflict, emphasizing that all those involved, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, would benefit from it.

Almaguer also highlighted the importance of the migratory flow from Ecuador to Mexico before the pandemic, as well as the negative impact that the reinstatement of the visa requirement for Ecuadorian citizens had on Mexican tourism.

Almaguer referred to the upcoming implementation of visas for Peruvian citizens who wish to visit Mexico, urging that the process be agile and efficient, similar to what has been requested for electronic visas for the Brazilian market.

He also assured that hoteliers will provide facilities to Peruvians whose visa processing is complicated, allowing them to keep their lodging reservations despite possible delays in their trips due to immigration procedures.
