Tourism still strong

This long weekend will see hotels around 90-percent full, Jalisco Tourism Secretary German Ralis Cumplido said this week.

The recent rupture of a sewage pipe and temporary beach closures hasn’t seemed to affect hotel reservations, he noted. And the absence this year of some 13,000 spring breakers from the United States wasn’t due to security worries, tourism services abuses or transportation problems, but hotel room prices.
