Our important tourism market of Cozumel Island in Mexico received a record number of visitors in 2015.
Almost 4 million people arrived to the island on cruises and flights in 2015, breaking the previous record, set in 2014, by 0.7%, according to official figures from ASUR, the island’s airport operator, and API, the island’s port authority.
The number of cruise ship passengers was down by 13,167 compared with 2014 but was more than made up for by an increase of 39,248 in airport arrivals.
Aided by the increase in visitor numbers, sales of Cozumel tours and other activities through our destination website, This is Cozumel, also grew substantially in the period and we have several exciting new projects to grow market share further in 2016.
