Tourism Quintana Roo expects to fill hotels in February with the arrival of Canadian travelers and spring break, as some routes from Canada have been restored and the season for young Americans has arrived.

The Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council predicts that the arrival of tourists from Canada will represent more than one million travelers. Darío Flota, director of the board, predicts that it will start from this weekend until March, although he recognizes that the same number of flights does not arrive as in 2019.

“But if the roads are restored, some will still open and we will wait,” he said, adding that “Canada represents more or less one and a half million travelers a year and most of them them arrive in these first three months, so we will see how it performs, ”said Fleet, as reported by Marcrixnoticias.

As for the “spring breakers”, it is estimated that between 15 and 20,000 students will arrive, as planned by Julián Valbuena, president of the administration of the Best Day Travel Club. “From next month, the spring breakers will start to arrive, which will reactivate the sector,” Valbuena said, according to Galú.

Likewise, Valbuena pointed out that the average expenditure of these travelers is 700 US dollars per day per person and that they come mainly from the east coast of the United States. “There could be a season similar to 2019, although it all depends on the vaccines and there are no restrictions,” Valbuena said.

Although tourists from other countries such as South Americans continue to arrive, they hope to improve the treatment of these travelers at Cancun International Airport, as travel agencies have proposed to the new Secretary of State to Tourism, Bernardo Cueto Riestra, as reported of Cancun: improving the treatment of South Americans at the airport).

Sergio González Rubiera, president of the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies (AMAV), said at the time that they would meet with Cueto to discuss various tourism issues and needs in the QRoo. He pointed out that one of the approaches will be the discriminatory treatment of tourists arriving from Colombia and other South American countries by customs and immigration personnel at Cancun International Airport, according to NotiCaribe.
