The hope for small and medium hotels is the end of the year season
During this period of celebrations of the Independence of Mexico, there was not much tourist activity as expected on the beaches of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo.
The president of the organization Hoteleros Asociados de Zihuatanejo, Jonathan Morales Moreno, expressed that tourism was reflected in a very scarce way, “we were around 40 percent globally, but there were hotels that had no rented rooms and others that they had 2 or 3 rooms ”.
“The vast majority of the inns looked semi-empty since it was not a long weekend holiday as such; It was an oasis during the week but it didn’t happen on the long weekend ”.
This happened due to the lack of money in the country since the expense of the return to school is recent, said the hotel leader.
Morales Moreno said that they expect occupancy to improve for the weekend since they have been at less than 15 percent occupancy, which is a very low figure on weekends, but they are not surprised because it is a period that is historically low.
“At least in our association the reservations are not fluid for these months; our expectations are high for the end of the year since the pandemic, lack of liquidity and return to classes is currently affecting ”, he pointed out.
