Quintana Roo recorded higher economic growth than China in 2016 and the second highest in Mexico, with strong tourist numbers behind the surge.
Only the small state of Aguascalientes recorded better 2016 growth than Quintana Roo, with 9.5%.
Overall, the Quintana Roo economy contributed 1.6% of Mexico’s total 2016 GDP.
Often considered the jewel in Mexico’s tourism crown, Quintana Roo is home to popular vacation destinations including Cancún, Playa del Carmen and Tulum and boasts a total of 98,000 rooms across the state.
The director of the Faculty of Tourism at Anáhuac University believes that the impressive GDP growth in Quintana Roo is linked to an upturn in tourism across Mexico.
