Although the month of September is one of the lowest months in terms of occupancy, the hotel sector in Tabasco reports activity close to 50 percent. However, they expect a rebound of at least 20 percent in the last quarter of the year.
Due to this, meeting, convention and business tourism is what keeps the industry alive in the entity, after more than two years of ups and downs due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
According to the president of the Mexican Association of Hotels and Motels of Tabasco, Jesús Manuel Raúl Soberano, during the summer vacation period there was an occupancy of 55 percent.

However, for the month of September it decreased a few percentage points, which is usual at this time of year. He also said that so far the figure is positive because the occupation was expected to be lower, but events such as the Mexican Petroleum Congress held during the month of July, among other important events, helped maintain the occupation.
The leader of the hoteliers also commented that there are good expectations for the rest of the year. This is due to the fact that there are more and more events at the door and during the month of December tourists are also received.
Raúl Soberano commented that in addition to this, new hotels could be opened in Tabasco by 2023, which represents investments and job creation for the industry without chimneys, which is currently holding its third national meeting in Tabasco.
