The transition to yellow at the epidemiological traffic light in Quintana Roo gives hotels and restaurants in Cancun, and other destinations, a respite towards Easter that is approaching, as they may register occupations of up to 60 percent.
However, even with these new restrictions, some hotels and restaurants in downtown Cancun, for example, will not be able to reach even 40 percent, due to the low influx of tourists.
Roberto Cintrón Gómez, president of the Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres Hotel Association (Ahcpm & Im), pointed out that the change in the traffic light speaks very well of the handling that has been given to the pandemic.
He added that the yellow traffic light will also contribute to an increase in the capacity of business tourism, which was reactivated a few weeks ago. “This generates confidence among travelers, who in times of pandemic seek safe destinations to vacation, especially in this upcoming season,” he explained.
Finally, the hotel leader insisted on the need not to lower our guard and continue to comply with all prevention protocols to avoid an upturn in coronavirus cases that leads to returning to the orange traffic light or worse, to confinement.
