A substantial growth from French tourists into Cancun is expected by New Year. In addition, according to the tourist barometer of the Association of Hotels in Cancun and Puerto Morelos (AHC), quoted in an article by Union Cancun, French tourism ranks fifth in the European markets, same as reported 9.7% growth in the first five months of the year, 343 more visitors than the same period last year.
This year a further growth of French tourism is expected, as a result from the diplomatic exchange between both nations last year, when Mexico and France exchanged delegates who promoted the culture, gastronomy and tourism in both countries.
The governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge Angulo said that “The reason of choice in Cancun is very symbolic; confirming once again that Cancun and the Yucatan Peninsula are positioned as a highly attractive destinations for all actors in the tourism industry and foreign investors”.
