Since the epidemiological red light was declared for the state of Guerrero, hotel reservations in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo have reduced considerably, to the extent that by February some hotels only have 10 percent.
The President of the Ixtapa Hotel Association, Rogelio León Quiñones, said that the health issue is very important to them and it is understood that the measures imposed are precisely for this reason, however, it has been very difficult.
Tourists are not arriving and another factor that he considered has had an impact on hoteliers is that allocating 30 percent of the capacity does not allow them to operate at a balance point to be profitable.
Since the beginning of the year they have not had a very good time, in relation to the recent holiday weekend holiday they did not have enough profits, he argued that they did not reach 30 percent.
Regarding the upcoming dates, Rogelio León cited as an example that for the celebration of Valentine’s Day the panorama is seen in the same way, since visitors do not want to travel to a place where there are many restrictions.
The hotel representative finally made a call to the entire population in general, as well as to the authorities, not to lower their guard to reduce infections and with that to be able to leave the red traffic light, otherwise, there will be many companies that they will be forced to close permanently.
