After one week has passed through the territory of Quintana Roo the effects of tropical storm Rina had a mere 5% loss in hotel occupancy. As reported by small hotels: occupancy levels in the first week of November were 55% and by the end of October it was the target by 60%.
"No scheduled arrivals are scheduled by this date, but from the day of the storm for a day interrupted the natural flow of tourists to this destination, which affected the following week for early termination of holiday tourists "said Juan Manuel Solis, manager of a small hotel. He stressed that they are working on addressing the high season. The low season may be low, but is not as alarming as levels in 2009 and 2010.
He explained that in the years of the low traffic from the Spanish and English, which was reflected in adverse conditions for the economy hotel industry, times are better now. "2009 fell well below market expectations, but what helps is that other markets that were incipient, grew as Canada and Central America," sidestepped.
The president of the Business Coordinating Council Riviera Maya, Gerardo Valades Victorio said the offseason has significant levels of increase, even with the effects of Rina, as has been the growth of U.S. markets. It is anticipated that the peak season will greately strengthen. According to the Mayan calendar, 2012, will attract more tourists during the winter season, so expect a greater than 25% growth at the beginning of December.
