Over 15% growth in tourist for Cabo in first half of 2016

Date Published:

Encouraging figures have been released this week showing over 15% of an increase in tourism in both Los Cabos and La Paz in the first 6 months of 2016.

This includes both domestic and foreign tourists. And is reflected in higher hotel occupancy, busier airports and new flight routes. Check out our recent articles over below – we have been covering all this stuff over the last few months.

Ironically this good news comes in the same week as the tropical storm Javier – which had the potential to wreak havoc on the tourist scene of Cabo. Fortunately, unlike Odile in 2014, Javier did not develop into a hurricane.

Cabo’s tourism Minister proudly pointed out that – “operations of the tourism sector in the municipalities of La Paz and Los Cabos, did not suffer any effect by the passage of the tropical storm Javier. The rains did not affect the infrastructure of tourist services, or the integrity of tourists.”

Over 27 000 tourists in Cabo were kept safe and secure throughout the storm. And huge efforts were made to reopen the port, clean up the beaches and get things back to normal as quickly as possible.

With a record like that, here’s hoping tourism in Cabo grows another 15% in the next 6 months of the year.

Right now tourist related activities generate more than 70% of the state GDP and employ over 250 000 people in the middle peninsula. So a 15% growth in tourism translates into massive social and economic benefits for the local community.  And this, of course,  can only be a good thing for Cabo.
