Punta Cana displaces Cancun in the preference of Argentine tourists

The Caribbean remains one of the most popular vacation destinations for Argentines, as it managed to stay in the top 3 favorite destinations. January took 45% of the total trips, February 30% and March, for now, 25%, according to Travel Services agency.

The most chosen by Argentines tend to be: Mexico (Cancun and Playa del Carmen), Dominican Republic (Punta Cana and Bayahibe) and Cuba. On the other hand, and on a smaller scale, Panama, Costa Rica and Aruba are added.

Among them, the agency detailed that Punta Cana, Cancun, Bayahibe and Playa del Carmen are the 4 most purchased destinations for vacations from January to March.

It is highlighted that the peak of purchases to travel to the Caribbean took place in October 2023. The average stay of Argentines remained at 7 nights throughout the 3 months.

“This summer’s surprise for Caribbean destinations is the leadership of Punta Cana, which had been third in 2023 and now relegated its followers Cancun to second place and Playa del Carmen to third place in preferences. And Punta Cana will continue to be a novelty because it is currently one of the most popular destinations abroad for Easter,” said Guido Boutet, marketing manager of Travel Services.

He said that Punta Cana, compared to other Caribbean destinations, has the characteristic of offering a good variety of rates and an offer of all-inclusive hotels, a condition increasingly valued by Argentines who seek to minimize the use of cash and avoid expenses during their trips abroad.

“The Caribbean has a diversity of destinations and always manages to position itself as an interesting option for vacationing abroad. Those who are in love with the Caribbean and want to return will find options to travel at different times of the year. We thought it was going to be difficult to sustain the success we had last year in the summer season but, as always, the Caribbean surprises and continues to be one of the favorite destinations for Argentines”, he added.

For those who want to travel to Punta Cana during Easter Week, there are travel package options in Travel Services from $1,500,000 and flights from $1,050,000. Another alternative is to opt for Cancun with packages from $1,350,000 and flights from $990,000.
