The Mexican Caribbean Flexes its Muscles All over Again
Tourism in the Mexican Caribbean “is back,” with hotel occupancy last month sitting at a healthy 59% throughout the state.
This is even more significant considering that current hotel capacity in the region is still at 85% of normal conditions, says Laura Nesteanu, Account Manager, Canada at Global Marketing & Sales, Inc., which represents the Mexican Caribbean in Canada.
During a media reception last night in Toronto, Nesteanu highlighted the many reasons why the Mexican Caribbean, which includes such popular destinations as Riviera Maya, Cancun and Playa del Carmen, should be top of mind among Canadian vacationers this winter.
For one thing, there is no vaccination mandate to enter Mexico, making it easy for sun-seekers to visit. However, this isn’t to say the destination isn’t taking health and safety seriously – on the contrary, says Nesteanu.
While the majority of Canadians travel to the Riviera Maya, Nesteanu says there are so many other options that should be considered, namely in the southern region where ecotourism has become a staple offering.
