Though universities in Arizona have cancelled the traditional Spring Break for 2021, Rocky Point still holds high expectations for tourism come mid-March, remarked Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCV) president Héctor Vázquez del Mercado.
The OCV president noted Spring Break remains in effect for general education levels in the US and so expects the city to welcome more families. In fact, reservations are already at 70% for available lodging during the second part of March.
It is important to remember there is reduced capacity limits for hotels (60%) and resorts (80%) given ongoing health protocols due to covid-19. Even so, perspectives are good overall, which will represent important economic revenue for Puerto Peñasco as tourism continues to be the city’s main economic pillar.
Vázquez del Mercado detailed 2021 will see ongoing Safe Point protocols, along with varying restrictions due to Covid-19. Still, he anticipates a 15% increase in both international and national tourism over 2020.
Towards this goal, the “Feeling Rocky Point” 2021 campaign of the local Convention and Visitors Bureau is focused primarily on promoting the safety offered in this destination, along with its health protocols, and encouraging outdoor activities and being in touch with nature as much as possible.
