Riviera Maya, Q.R. — A significant rebound in vacation club sales is anticipated for 2022 after an increase last year. Alberto Solís Martínez, president of the Association of Vacation and Tourist Complexes (Acotur) says they could reach $2 billion this year.
He says club and timeshares in destinations such as Cancun, Riviera Maya and Cozumel are seeing an increase in sales. While 2021 yielded a positive rebound, this year is expected to be even higher, he said.
“The net sales that we had in 2021 exceeded $1.2 billion and the goal for 2022 is very ambitious, we want to reach net sales of close to two billion dollars… it is an ambitious goal, but we are confident that we can achieve it.
“In the southeast alone there were more than 900 million dollars in sales” he stressed.
Solis says they are estimating a 63 percent increase in the commercialization of memberships, which will be added to the opening of 21 new developments around the country that will see the addition of nearly 5,000 more hotel rooms.
Solis added that last year, sales across Mexico reached $254 billion, a 110 percent increase over the previous year with 78 percent of those sales being made in the southeastern regions of the country.
“The southeast of the country sold 78 percent of the memberships nationwide. This region concentrates 62 percent of the sales rooms as well as one of every three hotels that operate under the timeshare and vacation club modality, which are located in the Mexican Caribbean area,” he specified.
