Riviera Maya, Q.R. — More than a million tourists are expected throughout Riviera Maya for the upcoming Spring-Easter holidays. Playa del Carmen mayor Lili Campos says they have projected 113,300 tourists for Playa del Carmen, another 351,600 for the Riviera Maya Corridor and more than 573,200 throughout the Riviera Maya.

According to Jorge Alberto Vázquez Oropeza, head of Civil Protection, in view of this influx, surveillance operations on the beaches will be reinforced by lifeguards to safeguard the integrity of bathers.

Vázquez Oropeza said that meetings are already being held with the hotel and business sectors to adjust and refine this year’s contingency plan. Tourists are expected to begin arriving this week to enjoy the 2023 Easter holiday season.
