Cancun, Q.R. — State investments look promising for this year, says the state Secretary of Tourism, Marisol Vanegas. She says in 2021, investment in tourist and hotel developments will be important for Quintana Roo.
“We are receiving construction licenses and environmental function licenses from the municipalities with which they can update the number of rooms per year,” she said.
Although 2020 figures were not as desired given the covid contingency, the rooms that were added to Quintana Roo were good. “At the end of 2020, despite all the bad which practically saw us restart from zero on June 8, despite the fact that we had 47 percent less tourism than in 2019, and that there was 58 percent less income than in 2019, nearly 8,000 additional rooms were developed statewide,” she explained.
“There are still important projects with good growth expectations because construction was considered an essential activity that was maintained, although perhaps the pace slowed a bit, but we will have important openings in 2021 because important projects will be completed,” added Marisol Vanegas.
The Secretary of Tourism specified that one of the most outstanding projects that will be developed this year is SHA Wellness Clinic.
“SHA has already confirmed to us that it is continuing its project in April. They are resuming it completely. The wellness centre will be located between Puerto Juárez and continential Isla Mujeres.”
SHA Wellness Clinic is a 241-room hotel project on a 6.6-hectare site and will be the second property of its brand in the world. She also noted that the Nickelodeon Hotel, which was scheduled to open last year, has been completed and has already opened this year.
