lifestyle, travel This is Cozumel


Figures released by ASUR, the operator of Cozumel airport, show the number of passengers through the island terminal was up 1.4% for the last 6 months, compared with 2009.

According to the report, published earlier this month, international traffic was particularly strong, up 5.5% in the period May-October 2010, over May-October 2009.

Although traffic was down in the low season months, the 6 month trend is encouraging for the local tourism industry.

2010 has been a difficult year economically, so to see an increase in visitors is testimony to the quality of Cozumel as a tourism destination.

The news also comes as the island sees the highest number of weekly cruise ship arrivals for 6 months.

This week it's expected that some 27 ships will arrive to Cozumel with an estimated 81,000 passengers.
