In Merida, hotel occupancy increased 4.2 percent in January, compared to the same month last year, as said by the state tourism department.

 

This boost shows the traffic gains seen at Merida’s international airport. In January this year, the airport handled 213,037 passengers, which is 11 percent more than the same time span in 2018.

 

In Merida, hotel occupancy was at 60 percent, with dominance of domestic travelers.
Across the state, 65.6 percent of the hotel business was concentrated in Merida, followed by Valladolid with 7.1, Chichen Itza with 3, Izamal with 1.9 and Uxmal with 1.7 percent.

 

Overnight stays increased 17.5 percent, with around 164,000 visitors. Just 26 percent were international travelers. Most overnight stays were seen in Merida. Valladolid came in next.

 

Yucatan tourist officials promoted tourism business in February at the Colombian Association of Travel and Tourism Agencies (Anato) 2019 in Bogotá. The fair is considered South America’s most prominent tourism event.

 

They also took part at the International Tourism Fair in Berlin, Germany, hoping to attract more European visitors.

 

The tourism officials were also in Quebec, Canada, at Routes América 2019, hoping to increase aviation routes to the Merida airport.

 

In March, more flights were inaugurated connecting the Merida airport to Oaxaca, Chihuahua, Hermosillo and Tijuana.
