Analysis of the Room Supply in the Hotel Zone of Cancun, Mexico: EMU 9

The area known as the Hotel Zone of Cancun, sun and beach destination located in the State of Quintana Roo and considered to be of the highest importance to Mexico, is the central focal point of this article. It starts with a description of the behavior of tourism and its influence on the generation of public resources through tax collection. It then outlines regulation and legislation relating to the maximum amount permitted by the number of rooms at the Environmental Management Unit (EMU-9)* which includes the hotel zone. The central analysis is based on census results obtained in the month of November 2011. The main findings were grouped into the three main operation types: All Inclusive, European Plan and Mixed Plan. Criteria are formulated by scales according to the area in square meters, including frequencies with the type of operation, grouped by number of bathrooms and beds.

*Environmental Management Unit (EMU-9) = Unidad de Gestión Ambiental (UGA-9)

The conclusions demonstrate the need to establish policies and clear boundaries to avoid an uncertain future for the most important sun and beach destination of the Mexican Caribbean.
