Italian tourism remains stable in Quintana Roo


Italian tourism that arrives in Quintana Roo has remained stable in recent years, about 180 thousand travelers per year, perhaps due to lack of promotion in print media and with tour operators in Italy, said Filippo Strano, honorary consul of that country in Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Yucatán.

While he said that most of the Italians who travel to Mexico enter through Cancun, he clarified that not everyone stays here and those who do travel preferentially to the Riviera Maya.

“Italian tourism is closing roughly the same as last year. There was a decrease, but it is not noticeable, it is almost imperceptible. Every year about 180,000 Italians enter through Cancun, taking advantage of direct flights, but few stay in this city, prefer the Riviera Maya or come with the intention of moving to places like San Cristóbal de las Casas, in Chiapas. The least make an air transfer to Mexico City and return. ”

The interviewee said that growth in the influx of Italians is not expected for next year.

“It could happen if there are no problems of sargassum and others that have hit the area. It is noteworthy that Italian tourism has remained stable in recent years, without further growth, perhaps due to lack of promotion in Italian media and agencies of tour operators.

Finally, he said that this season there are two weekly flights, from Rome and Milan, but in high season others are opened from places like Bologna and Verona.
