The New Tulum Airport is seen as a catalyst for hotel growth in the south of Quintana Roo. According to experts, the Tulum Airport will detonate hotel demand in the south of Quintana Roo.
Anticipation is in the air. With the imminent opening of the Tulum Airport, scheduled for December, a profound transformation is predicted in the tourist and hotel landscape of southern Quintana Roo.
This project, beyond being a door to Caribbean heaven, is positioned as the engine that will drive the expansion and renewal of the hotel sector in the region.
The words of the president of Mexico resonate throughout the peninsula: the Tulum Airport, soon to take off, will be the spark that ignites renewed interest in the south of Quintana Roo.
This expectation is reflected in the words of Toni Chaves, president of the Riviera Maya Hotel Association (AHRM).
For him, the airport will not only enrich Tulum, but will be a vital artery that will connect Quintana Roo with the world, and potentially, with the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), becoming a strategic portal for tourists who visit the state.

The State of Quintana Roo has an impressive number of 130,104 available rooms. Of these, 10,981 are in Tulum, 1,373 in Bacalar, 2,220 in Othón P. Blanco, and Felipe Carrillo Puerto has 186.
Although these figures may seem robust, the reality is that many of these hotels are small establishments, which poses a logistical challenge to accommodate a significant increase in tourists.
As Chaves points out, places like Mahahual, Bacalar and Chetumal, although popular, are mostly home to smaller hotels that may not have the capacity to receive the wave of tourists that daily flights would bring.
Even so, Chaves emphasizes that southern Quintana Roo has undeniable potential. But to maximize this potential, it is crucial to consider a hotel expansion in the medium term, adapting supply to projected demand.

It is a promise of development, an opportunity for the south of Quintana Roo to shine even more on the global tourist map.
Tulum Airport is not just an air terminal, it is the key to a new era of prosperity for Quintana Roo. As airplane wings take to the skies over Tulum, opportunities and growth are expected to take off for the state’s vibrant south as well.
