Cancun and Riviera Maya Top Travel Trends

Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum are the most sought after destinations in Expedia 

With 2021 marking the start of a massive global vaccination, hope is returning to millions of travelers around the planet, eager to pack suitcases and enjoy an unforgettable summer.

Of course, with the renewed intentions to vacation in exotic tourist destinations, new trends are also awakening in terms of vacation destinations and travel styles. The one that concerns us the most is the interest of the US market in visiting the coasts of the Mexican Caribbean. According to the Tourism Trends Report by ARC (Airlines Reporting Corporation) in collaboration with Expedia for 2021, the most searched destination on the portal, one of the most important search engines in the world, was Cancun, followed by Playa del Carmen and Tulum

So far, in Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya and Cancun’s home state, nearly two million tourists are expected to arrive, with 70% arriving from within the country during February or March. Regarding North American tourism, 49% of the total would also be arriving to the Mexican Caribbean.
