• Between 2022 and 2023 there was an increase of half a million tourists.

The general director of the Los Cabos Tourism Trust (FITURCA), Rodrigo Esponda Cascajares, pointed out that the current year will close with at least 4 million national and international visitors.

The expert recalled that the best year for the sector was 2019, with a record of more than 4 million tourists, a situation that was slowed down by the global Covid pandemic; Between 2021 and 2022, the recovery of visitors was achieved in an atypical manner, so it was expected that in 2023 the growth would not be as exponential as the figures show today.

“The closing of 2023 looks very positive, it has been a year of adjustment and changes, but we are going to close with 4 million visitors, both national and international, and this is half a million additional visitors to those we had in the previous year. It began the year with a growing flow of visitors double said and from August it began to be adjusted and began with a more seasonal growth that we traditionally had in the destination.”

He added that it is possible to know this from the advance reservations that some visitors have made and a total “success” is expected in this last week of November and December, due to the activities that have been scheduled at the destination.

In that sense, Esponda Cascajares commented that the traveler has changed over the years with a profile much more interested in the local, from gastronomy to caring for the environment and experiences in places that reflect the nature of the municipality, but without put aside the activities that initially attracted them to Los Cabos.

“That does not mean that he no longer likes golf or fishing, but they wants to do others that have greater understanding; in the Los Cabos service chain there has been an interesting transformation in entertainment, in communities, organic farms, the well-being and experiences around meditation, sports, hiking”

Likewise, they project a positive start to 2024, with great expectations of new connections for the United States and other countries, he concluded.
