In Cancún, Live by Christina SilvestriLeave a Comment

For the first time in history, more than 1 million tourists flew in to visit the Mexican resort state of Quintana Roo in September, according to the Tourism Market Intelligence System of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council (CPTQ).

Quintana Roo is home to some of Mexico’s most beautiful and sought-after resort destinations, including Cancún, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and more.

This historic figure was reached by adding the total number of passengers who arrived at the three airports in the state: Cancún, Cozumel and Chetumal in September, which is usually considered low season for tourism.

“Thanks to the wide tourist offer and air connectivity of Quintana Roo in the Mexican Caribbean, this number was reached through 7,100 flights coming from 101 cities in 25 countries around the world,” says the CPTQ in a statement.

Cozumel, in particular, reported 85.5 percent growth in September compared to 2019. According to the accumulated record from January to September of this year, more than 11 million passengers have arrived in Quintana Roo, which represents 15.6 percent more than in the same period of 2019. 

To date, the Cancún International Airport stands out for having reported the highest growth in international passenger movement in the country, which contributes to the positioning of the Mexican Caribbean area as a leader in international tourism. 

“Thanks to the joint work with airlines, private initiatives, hotels and the government, results continue to be obtained in favor of Quintana Roo society,” says the CPTQ.
