Heading to Quintana Roo—or any of its nearby destinations such as Cancún, Cozumel, Holbox, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum—anytime soon? Apparently, you’re in good company.

Quintana Roo continues to be a destination of choice for travelers around the globe and across the U.S., according to recent findings by TravMedia. The report states that during the first half of last year, Quintana Roo received more than 3.1 million U.S. tourists who arrived through all airports in the state—an increase of nearly 40% compared to the same period in 2019.

This behavior confirms the relevance of this market for tourism in Quintana Roo since, between January and June 2023, the United States represented 37.8% of the total number of travelers, being the primary market for the state.

The total percentage of international visitors was 67.3%, representing more than 5.4 million people. Meanwhile, the total number of domestic and foreign tourists was close to 8.3 million.
