Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — Puerto Morelos reports a stable 60 percent hotel occupancy rate throughout the summer says Héctor Tamayo Sánchez, the municipal secretary for Economic Development and Tourism.
“Fortunately, air operations continued at a good pace, from 450 to 500 a day, and the stays were being extended more and more thanks to the confidence generated by being a safe destination with the health protocols that have been implemented in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
Puerto Morelos, along with the rest of the state, maintained an orange epidemiological light for the duration of the summer, allowing for a maximum capacity of 60 percent occupancy in the municipality’s 7,000 hotel rooms.
Tamayo Sánchez said hotels were filled by mostly national and American tourists thanks to the opening of air connections coupled with the increase in greater consumer confidence.
Adventure tourism on the Ruta de los Cenotes, along with aquatic and fishing activities, were also kept at their maximum capacity along with restaurants, he said.
“By indications of the mayor, we will continue promoting responsible tourism to advance in our economic recovery, taking care at all times of the health of the people of Puerto Morelos and vacationers who trust in our destination,” he added.
