The Easter and Easter holidays of this 2022 left an economic spill higher than that registered in the same period of 2019, before the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the state governor, during Holy Week and Easter, Jalisco received three thousand 155 million pesos in economic benefits derived from tourismequivalent to 7.4% more than what was registered in that vacation period three years ago.
In those two weeks, he pointed out, the Entity received close to one million 328 thousand people, who went mainly to the tourist destinations of Puerto Vallarta, with a hotel occupancy of 82.7%, and the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area (ZMG) with an occupancy of 61% and a spill of 978 million pesos.
In other words, only the ZMG received around 30% of the resources that entered the Entity derived from tourism.
“Jalisco is Mexico, and more than a slogan, it is a commitment to continue working, together with the private initiative, in our tourist infrastructure and in the municipalities, so that those who visit Jalisco feel the pride of living and knowing the identity of Mexico in our land,” said the state president through his social networks.
Yesterday, Wednesday, the president of the Jalisco Hotel Association, Juan Carlos Mondragón, stressed that although it was expected that Jalisco would take up to two years to recover in terms of tourist influx, in the first quarter of this 2022 there is a hotel occupancy of 55% on average, and it is estimated that it could reach up to 58, levels similar to those documented in 2019.
