In Cancun and the Riviera Maya, 15 thousand weddings of people from different parts of the world are held every year, which has managed to generate an important economic spill if we only take into account that each event of this type includes an overnight stay of 3.4 nights in different hotels, in addition to local shops related to banquets, transport rental florists, beauty salons, as well as sound equipment.
The director of the area tourism member of the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo (CPTQ) Rocío Gonzales said that the most requested weddings in the destinations of the Mexican Caribbean are from South Asia, Persians and Jewish, while 60 percent corresponds to American couples, who hire a local wedding planner.
She stressed that the aerial connectivity of Quintana Roo, with the international airports of Cancun, Cozumel, as well as Chetumal, as well as the wide tourist offer, manages to get couples to choose the destinations of the Mexican Caribbean to celebrate proposals for marriage, weddings, anniversaries, renovation of vows, honeymoons, baby moon and religious, traditional, thematic marriages or Mayan ceremonies.
It should be remarked that the state participated in the Wedding Salon New York Summer Showcase 2019 event, a wedding show aimed at couples who are close to getting married and where they promoted: hotels, suppliers, makeup artists, travel agencies specializing in honeymoons, dresses bridal and everything related to the union of couples.
The event was attended by more than 400 people between couples, brides and wedding planners, who learned about the different attractions of the main destinations in the Mexican Caribbean.
