Different Types of Accommodations

In a recent interview, Juan Enrique Suarez, Nayarit Secretary of Tourism talked about how the Nayarit area is experiencing a surge of this new type of accommodation.

This dynamic shift brings in more tourists and allows the local tourism industry to not just rely on hotel occupancy.  

“It no longer relies solely on hotel occupancy rates, but encompasses a holistic evaluation that factors in the digital platform utilization, along with foot traffic in public spaces,” stated Juan Enrique Suarez.
