Los Cabos Hotels will not be able to reopen on June 1st, 2020 as originally stated.
They see a serious crisis within the hotel sector. Mauricio Salicrup, representative of the Los Cabos Hotel Association, announced at a virtual press conference that they will wait for the State Health Security Council in Baja California Sur for the official instruction to reactivate the hotel sector, since they will not be able to do it this June 1st. Meanwhile partners work on security and sanitation strategies in tourist developments to guarantee the Los Cabos area to be a clean destination.
Another of the topics addressed in the virtual press conference, was related to the segments that would be reactivated in the destination, as soon as the state authorities raise the flag in BCS as a safe destination. He said that the first group of tourists to be received would be the timeshare segment, while the Spring Breakers will be the last.
Likewise, he said that the economic losses are significant in the hotel sector, in addition to an optimistic scenario for this year, that a minimum of one million fewer tourists will be received, a downturn or decline that represents a financial deficit in all the productive sectors of the entity.
“Really what I can tell you is that there is no hotel group in the destination that is not already in the last hole of its belt, we are definitely all on the edge.”
He concluded by saying that the State Council for Health Safety is the one who will determine the economic reactivation of the half peninsula and who will establish the date in which the hotel sector will be able to operate.
