Cancun mayor reports 150,000 tourists per week during summer vacation period

Cancun, Q. R. — Lifeguards have been increased along the public beaches of Cancun. The increase was made due to the high expectations for the summer vacation season. Cancun Mayor Ana Paty Peralta reported 150,000 tourists per week are expected for the remainder of the month of July.

During the first semester of 2023, Cancun hotel occupancy rates remained above 75 percent. The summer vacation high season, which will begin in the third week of July, will be exceeded since the city has positioned itself as one of the favorite vacation spots for travelers.

Peralta says that in addition to sun and beach tourism, work is being done to implement other segments such as sports, education, health, culture, social and romance, among others, so that visitors not only arrive in the state during specific seasons, but attract tourists throughout the year.

The municipal secretary of Tourism, Juan Pablo de Zulueta Razo, pointed out that during the first week of the month, from July 2 to 8, hotel occupancy was 82 percent with an influx of 88,821 visitors and 4,060 air operations through the Cancun International Airport.
