Riviera Maya, Q.R. — More than 33 million travelers arrived in the state of Quintana Roo during 2023. On Friday, Quintana Roo Governor Mara Lezama said the state broke previous tourism records.

She reported a total of “33.7 million passengers, an impressive milestone that demonstrates the capacity and tourist attraction of the destination.”

She says more than 21 million of those travelers visited other state destinations (other than Cancun), marking an 8 percent increase in travelers and a 12 percent increase in spending over 2022.

“Quintana Roo is undoubtedly at its best moment, thanks to everyone who make these figures possible. Without a doubt, the transformation is advancing with shared prosperity, with social justice and with development,” she said in a statement.

According to the Quintana Roo Tourism Secretariat, the ports of Quintana Roo received more than 6.1 million cruise passengers in 2023, strengthening the economy and tourism.

“The tourism diversity of our destinations makes us unique, not only in Mexico, but in the world,” said Bernardo Cueto, the Secretary of Tourism.

“From paradisiacal beaches to cultural riches, each place offers an unforgettable experience, Quintana Roo is at its best,” he said.
