Cancun Received More Than 2 Million Tourists in June
Despite COVID restrictions and the invasion of sargassum, the International airport in Cancun received more than 2 million tourists in June.
Overwhelmingly considered a prime beach destination for national and international tourists alike, Cancun received more than two million travelers last month, despite a rebound in COVID-19 cases in the regions and the increased volume of sargassum plaguing the Mexican caribbean coastline.
According to the recent traffic report from Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (ASUR) the Cancun International Airport served a total of 2 million 90 thousand passengers in June 2021. This is the first time it has received more than 2 million tourists since February 2020, when 2 million 174 thousand travelers travelled to the region before the World Health Organization decreed the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of this total, one million 291 thousand passengers arrived on international flights, while 799 thousand people came in through national routes. For national tourism, this is the highest influx since August 2019, when 868 thousand people came through the airport traveling from other parts of Mexico.
The arrival of tourists to Cancun continues to grow despite the fact that, last week, the health authorities of Quintana Roo reported, on average, 200 new COVID-19 infections and seven deaths daily.
