Los Cabos Shows Drop In Tourists for December 2014

Date Published:
San Jose International Airport - A Quieter December than 2013

December 2014 showed a surprising drop in the number of both International and Mexican National passengers passing through the San Jose Del Cabo International Airport (SJD) according to the latest figures from The Pacific Airport Group (GAP).

In terms of international passengers, there were 191,200 arrivals but that compared poorly to December 2013 when 221,600 visitors were recorded; a reduction of 30,400 – a 14% drop.

As for domestic tourism in December 2013 there were 79,200 passengers recorded and in the same period for 2014 there were 77,900 , i.e. 1,300 fewer tourists .

Annually the picture was a little better however it still showed an overall drop of 3%. Most of the change could be attributed to the effects of Hurricane Odile and the fact that some resorts remain closed as yet, however an overall drop of only 3% on the year shows how robust the local tourist marketplace is when a disaster on that scale can have such a small effect in total.

Many local businesses are however not even noticing the drop in numbers: most of the restaurants and bars are full and all of the resorts and hotels which are open are reporting an “excellent season”.

“I am sold out till almost March” said one well-known city center hotelier “Cabo is back and we are busier than ever!”
