Cancun turns 47 years since its founding

Today, April 20, we are celebrating because our beloved city celebrates almost half a century since its founding. 47th Anniversary of Cancun.

 

Birth of Cancun

Cancun was the result of a tourism development project that began operations in the 1970s as a fully planned center. Unlike other cities in the Mexican Republic, Cancun was not founded by Spaniards because it was created entirely by Mexicans.

Tourist project that surpassed the success that any person had imagined. 47 years later Cancun is a city of almost one million habitants where people from 87 different countries are concentrated in addition to all the states that make up the Mexican Republic. The union of so many different nationalities, with their cultures, ideas and visions, makes Cancun a cosmopolitan city.

It is considered a young city but characterized by its fast pace of growth. In its 47 years of life Cancun has grown the same as Oaxaca in 500 years. And it has multiplied its population by 17.

The importance of tourism

47 years that have positioned Cancun as tourist destination number 1 of our country and Latin America, and one of the most attractive worldwide. It has more than 150 hotels totaling around 40,000 hotel rooms and receives a total of 4.6 million tourists per year.

 

For all of this, Cancun has become a city full of opportunities. City that has opened the doors to all of us who live here today. For all that that means from Lemmus Inver Mexico we celebrate its 47 anniversary and we continue betting and building the city that we want.
