Mexico's hotel industry showed clear effects of the COVID-19 pandemic with sharp year-over-year declines in the three key performance metrics during the week of 15-21 March 2020, according to preliminary data from STR.

In comparison with the week of 17-23 March 2019, Mexico hotels reported the following:

  • Occupancy: -54.2% to 30.2%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): -2.7 to MXN2,655.20
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -55.4% to MXN801.79

Among data-sufficient markets within Mexico, Mexico City continued to see the steepest decline in RevPAR (-74.2% to MXN454.50), due primarily to the largest drop in occupancy (-70.5% to 20.3%).

The city of Puebla saw absolute occupancy fall below 20% (-62.8% to 17.6%) and also experienced a double-digit decline in ADR (-17.7% to MXN1,101.88).

Mexico's biggest tourist destinations are also feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic but are still well above the national average in absolute occupancy.

The Mexican Caribbean and Puerto Vallarta are both maintaining an absolute occupancy above 40%. Nevertheless, the Mexican Caribbean saw a steep decline in RevPAR (-48.2% to MXN1,668.65), due to a substantial drop in occupancy (-44.6% to 42.6%). Puerto Vallarta was able to grow ADR slightly (+1.7% to MXN4,182.63) but experienced a decline in occupancy (-44.2% to 44.4%).
