The Los Cabos Tourism Trust (FITURCA) announced a record 13% growth in national and international visitors during the first quarter of 2022, an increase driven by the destination’s rapid response to the pandemic and the strict health and safety protocols applied during the last two years.
Today, Los Cabos has more than 500 weekly flights that connect with 26 cities in the United States and 7 in the Mexican Republic, a growth of 1.3 million seats is expected during the first half of 2022.
“Over the last few years, we have faced great challenges stemming from the pandemic and global travel restrictions; Today, we are pleased that Los Cabos is experiencing growth driven by its unique business model and demand among travelers for authentic and exclusive experiences. The pandemic allowed us to increase our tourism offer, create new ways of working with our partners, and fine-tune our business model,” said Rodrigo Esponda, general director of the Los Cabos Tourism Trust.
