The Mexican Caribbean continues to exhibit consistent tourism expansion in spite of the pandemic. From January to December 2021, nine hotel properties will be opening in the different destinations that make up the region.
This, according to Rocío González, MICE director for the Quintana Roo Tourism Board (CPTQ), who added that the destination has reopened several international flights that connect with top destinations within America and Europe.
“We have already completed a year of reactivation since the destinations began welcoming tourists again, we have more air connectivity than ever, and we have a lot of upcoming new projects. Of these, Costa Mujeres will have the most growth. All new hotels are building their own convention centers. It’s a positive indicator for the MICE industry,” she said.
There have already been some hotel openings during the first half of 2021: Planet Hollywood Costa Mujeres, Aloft Tulum, and Hotel Xcaret Arte.
The boho-chic inspired Aloft Tulum, located within a natural reserve, is the first and only hotel that offers indoor spaces for corporative meetings and private events in Tulum.
This is also the first international brand hotel in the micro-destination specialized in weddings with a Mayan flair. It has three multifunctional rooms with a total of 2,761ft2 of space and a maximum capacity for 240 people.
And there wouldn’t be a better way to end the year and welcome winter to the Mexican Caribbean than the opening of these new hotels: Waldorf Cancun, Hilton Cancun, Paradisus Costa Mujeres, Breathless Cancun, and Secrets Moxhé & Secrets Impressions Moxhé.
Secrets Moxhé will offer 683 rooms and a ballroom with 1,110 ft2 of space with maximum capacity for 1,220 people, divisible into 10 parts.
In addition, there are several new projects the Mexican Caribbean will announce for the upcoming years as they are confirmed.
