Bookings in Cancun are good, but not great.
According to a report in Reportur, some hoteliers continue to express concerns that, while the number of reservations they have is satisfactory, they are not as high as they were this time last year.
With 10,000 rooms coming online in the next two years, which will add to the 100,000 currently online not including new Airbnb offerings, the concern is especially significant.
One concern for hoteliers is that despite efforts from the Mexico Tourism Board and the Cancun Hotel Association, the message that Mexico's popular tourist destinations are safe has not reached travelers.
Earlier this year, the U.S. revised its travel warning, noting that Mexico tourist areas are safe. Hoteliers worry that this updated statement has not been well communicated to potential visitors-especially since their room reservations are not rebounding as quickly as they would like.
According to Reportur, hotel leaders met with government officials to discuss actions being taken to communicate security. The report notes that leaders left satisfied that new steps would be taken.
Cancun shouldn't have too much trouble attracting more visitors. Airlines such as Southwest, Spirit Airlines and Delta have all doubled down on the destination, boosting flights to the popular beach destination.
