Riviera Maya's All-Inclusive Hotels reach 95% occupancy during Holy Week

The all-inclusive hotels in Riviera Maya reached 95% occupancy during the Easter holiday period, but operated with a 10% employee deficit, according to Claudio Cortés Méndez, commissioner of the Revolutionary Confederation of Workers and Peasants (CROC) in Tulum.

Cortés explained that hotels hire staff based on the number of rooms and consumption centers, but this time one in ten positions remained unfilled.

“We are still recruiting staff right now, we are talking about hotels that are 10% below their workforce,” he said.

The CROC leader informed that hotel chains and the CROC itself continue to seek to hire through all means, so campaigns are being carried out in the communities of the Mayan area of both Tulum and Felipe Carrillo Puerto, and likewise in the rural population of the municipality of Chemax, in the state of Yucatan.

He referred to the fact that Mexican and foreign tourists booked their vacations in this tourist destination months in advance during the Easter holiday period, which ended this weekend.

Furthermore, he stated that while other hotels, such as those on the coast and in the center, will see a decrease in occupancy at the end of the high season, the large lodging centers located in the Riviera Maya strip -which covers the municipalities of Solidaridad and Tulum- will continue to operate above 90% until the month of May.

“In the Riviera Maya, we know that most of the all-inclusive hotels are located, where they had an occupancy rate of 90-95% for most of them, and it is being said that it will remain like that until the month of May,” he said.

He pointed out that this high level of operation is due to the fact that national and international agencies promote the destination and travelers continue to choose the Riviera Maya destination, which includes Tulum and Playa del Carmen, to enjoy the tourist places it offers.
