With more than 88,000 hotel rooms, Quintana Roo remains the main tourist destination in Mexico and Latin America, the main generator of foreign currency for the country and the preferred destination for investors, said Gov. Roberto Borge Angulo.

The governor said that this year, with national and foreign investments, the number of hotel rooms in Quintana Roo increased by 2,276 from 2014, including four and five diamond hotels and five star hotels.

“Cancun has at least 14 four and five diamond hotels and the Maya Riviera has 16,” he said.

The governor commented that this year new hotel rooms were built in Cancun, Isla Mujeres and the Maya Riviera. The number of rooms in the state went from 86,638 to 88,280, with an increase of about 2 percent.

Additionally, he said that to maintain the increase in touristic infrastructure of Quintana Roo, with the support of President Enrique Peña Nieto and the Tourism Secretariat, intense promotion actions have been carried out promoting the state’s tourist destinations in national and international fairs. The fairs look to attract emerging markets and to negotiate the arrival of more airlines and more frequent flights.

The strategy to attract more tourism includes diversifying the industry by complementing the draw of beaches with ecotourism, archeology, adventure, shopping, culture and sports.

Borge Angulo highlighted that 18 of the 187 archeological sites open in the country by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) are in Quintana Roo, including Tulum, which is the third most visited site with more than 1.3 million visitors in 2015.

“Quintana Roo offers 46 malls, 17 golf courses, 34 theme parks, 58 spas, performances like Cirque du Soleil and other events put on throughout the year,” he said.

Laura Fernández Piña, the State Tourism Secretary, said that in this way tourism diversity can be strengthened in the state, offering the visitor more attractions, not just the beaches of Cancun, Cozumel and Chetumal.
