More proof that the Riviera Maya tourism market has made its comeback,this week,with hotel occupation figures 61.4% higher than 2009.
The local tourism promotion trust said 72.8% of rooms in the Riviera Maya were full so far this month,compared with just 45.1% in May last year.
2009 was a tough year with the health scares and global financial crisis,and the figures are still not back to normal.
They do,however,represent a strong recovery that many other resorts will be jealous to see,including in the USA and Canada,where tourism has also suffered.
The news came as Tulum,the fastest growing part of the Riviera Maya,was voted the second Best Beach and Sun Destination in the world,by travel website TripAdvisor and the new Riviera Maya international airport was confirmed.
Tourists flocking back are also having a "trickle down" effect on the Riviera Maya real estate market. Many tourists fall in love with the Mexican Caribbean when they visit and decide to buy property too.
Higher accommodation occupancy rates help drive up vacation rental property prices too,giving owners an even better return on investment and increased capital value.
