The Los Cabos occupancy results in April this year were a little different this year due to when the peak Spring holiday season took place.

Last year, the Easter holiday was on April 9. That meant the entire Spring peak holiday travel period was in April.

This year, Easter was on March 31, which meant the entire peak Spring holiday travel period fell during the month of March.

“At the beginning of the year it was mentioned that it would be a year with many more challenges than last year, when we were registering greater growth,” said Los Cabos hotel industry spokesperson Lilzi Orcí Fregoso. “Registering 73% was reaching the same figures we registered last year [in April], which is very good.

Current bookings reveal that the percentage of occupied hotel rooms in Los Cabos should be about 72 percent in May.

This is three to four percentage points higher than the results from last year.

Busy Resorts, High Rates

As a result of the strong demand for hotel rooms in Los Cabos, the room rate remained high for travelers during the month of April with an average nightly rate of $570 per night.

Compared with last year at this time, the average nightly room rate in the beach resort destination of Los Cabos is 10 percent higher this year.

Experts expect that rate to continue for most of the year with a potential for a slight decrease possible in the middle of the summer due to the heat, humidity and potential hurricane and tropical storm threat.
