Tourism Council anticipating “excellent” Cancun, Riviera Maya travel season

Cancun, Q.R. — Tourist officials in Quintana Roo say the Cancun, Riviera Maya region is nearing a 90 percent hotel occupancy rate for the upcoming summer period. Darío Flota Ocampo, the director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council (CPTQ) says they are anticipating an “excellent” summer holiday season.

With increased tourism promotions and more international flights for May and June, the region’s hotel reservations for summer are filling quickly.

“We are going to maintain our figures. Starting in July and into August, we will be between 80 and 90 percent,” he said adding that “Mexico is transitioning to an endemic state of covid-19 which gives visitors confidence.”

For the 2022 year, nearly 16 million air seats were made available to Cancun International, almost 9 percentage points higher than what was made available in 2019.

“This summer, the novelty is that we are going to have all the connections in Europe back. July, August and September are the months when Europeans travel the most. The new flight from Barcelona, from Iberojet is a good example, and sales have been so good that two per week have already been scheduled,” he said.
