The vacation club market is starting to reschedule its vacations in the Mexican Caribbean, after a three-month break, so Cancun vacation clubs expect members to arrive as early as June. Those who canceled their vacations are already looking for contact with the airlines to determine their opening of flights and thus resume their trips to the Caribbean, after the weeks they have were paused by the closure of the lodging centers.
The member of a vacation club usually returns year after year, feeling at home, and by covering at least 48% of the rooms, the vacation clubs will be among the first to reopen and it will be obvious, with the health certifications already in place. The reactivation should be gradual and with open communication between tourism actors, so that they can help visitors to the Mexican Caribbean to reschedule their next vacation with the certainty that their flight will leave and the resort will be ready to receive them.
According to the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo, airlines are preparing to reopen flights for June, as well as lodging centers that are preparing to open the same month, although it will depend on the indications of the Ministry of Health. This will be slow and the Cancun vacation clubs will not return with 100% occupancy and plans are being made to change the hotel industry to meet the standards that require it and to ensure safe stays for travelers.
It is necessary to reactivate the economy, and if this is not done properly it will affect the long term, which is why some hotels are even planning to open on May 15.
According to the Hotel Associations of Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres, and Riviera Maya, the hotels keep more than 90% of their rooms closed, which maintains occupancy of no more than 5% and in the case of the Cancun International Airport, with less than 50 operations per day. The resources that are destined for the Mayan Train will now be used for promotion to help boost tourism to the country, and after the contingency is over, the work of the Mayan Train will continue.
