Before 2020, the low season on the Jalisco coast began in April when there were 40% occupancies in hotels, however, for this year, there was an occupation of 80 percent (%).

Estrada Virgen highlighted that, in the current summer vacations, hotel occupancy is important, reporting full rooms, in addition, conventions are planned for October, in addition to the increase in the arrival of international flights.
