Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- At a time when even recognized hotels in the port were forced to close their doors permanently due to the health emergency, it does not compare to the bonanza that ‘surviving’ and emerging hotels are having, because they have even obtained benefits with a new type of tourism.
Guillermo Romero Rodríguez, President of the Tourism Commission of the Confederation of National Chambers of Commerce, declared that despite the fact that the hoteliers themselves have had to promote the port with their own resources, the influx of visitors to Mazatlán has been profitable, reaching record up to 72 percent occupancy just last week.
“The promotion is very little, the one that is had of the destination by the authorities, each one does promotion with their own resources and especially right now the online platforms, online (…) The destination is really going very well, May has come out strong We see a lot of tourism with very good occupancy levels, we had 72 percent occupancy last week (…) The promotions are good but the hoteliers are mainly going out to sell the destination ”, he explained.
He explained that thanks to the virtual modality of basic education, families who previously could not go on vacation due to face-to-face classes, today can visit destinations such as Mazatlán, perceiving a tourist influx during the week and not only on weekends. That is why Romero Rodríguez admitted that as long as they do not return to face-to-face classes, they will continue to benefit, thus recovering the influx that was lost.
“The news is that until now he has reservations for Holy Week, Easter next year, until February there are reservations; February March and April, so this already tells you that it is a very consolidated destination that has worked a lot on the issue of the pandemic, on protocols, on health signs and today tourism comes and reflects it in person ”, referred.
