Los Cabos – Investment in Safety Increases Tourism

Los Cabos: Investment Pays Off

Los Cabos is known for many things….. like its stunning desert background, coastlines, luxury resorts, sunsets and nightlife.

According to the Los Cabos Tourism Board, there’s been a six percent growth in tourism and they’re attributing this to their nation’s investment in improving safety and security over the last year.

In a Nutshell:  Los Cabos implemented an emergency five-point plan last September to overhaul security procedures and nearly a year later they’re seeing a major turnaround with a 90% reduction in crime, according to their latest data.  There were several factors noted, such as upgrades to the destination’s security processes, personnel, and infrastructure.  The investment is paying off as they’re showing a record year with more than 1.8M visitors and that’s only through August 2018.

So what else does this mean for tourism in Los Cabos?  Plenty!

There are more interesting stats in addition to the six percent growth noted above.

  • 4.1% increase in international passenger arrivals year-over-year
  • 9 new air routes expected to increase seats to 36,000 (or more) by 2019
  • 6.1% growth in hotel inventory with about 2500 new rooms expected to open by 2019
  • More than $1B in hotel investments

I do love numbers and data so I have more from Los Cabos Tourism:

  • Seven out of 10 visitors are returning guests
  • 90% of all first timers said they’d return
  • 20% of tourists visit at least four times per year
