Tragic Violence at Political Debate Rocks Playa Del Carmen

During the night of a political debate, a member of the MORENA party was tragically murdered in Playa Del Carmen. As a result, the debate screening scheduled to take place in El Pedregal neighborhood park was abruptly cancelled following the attack.

Data from the Federal Ministry of Tourism (Sedetur) reveals that Cancún has maintained its position as the second most popular destination for hotel occupancy. This information is based on a monitoring system that tracks 12 key tourist spots across the country.

For the 19th week of the year, spanning May 8 to 14, 2024, the average hotel occupancy rate across these 12 destinations was 54.3%. Cancún was among the locations with the highest occupancy, recording a rate of 68.2%. This figure is slightly higher by 0.4% compared to the same period last year, when the rate was 67.8%.

Los Cabos topped the list with a hotel occupancy rate of 68.9%, just 0.7% higher than Cancún. Puerto Vallarta followed in third place, with a 65.3% occupancy rate.
