- Holiday comparison community say travellers from Manchester are choosing Cancun over all other holiday destinations -
Holiday Hypermarket, a UK based holiday comparison community, say that holidaymakers from Manchester are choosing to fly to Cancun more than any other destination, taking the lead over holidays to Cuba and other popular far flung destinations. Data collected by Holiday Hypermarket showed that the Mexican region is the most popular with Mancunian travellers, accounting for a large percentage of overall bookings.
Over 400 flights carrying Holiday Hypermarket travellers left from Manchester airport in the first three weeks of January 2012 and flights to Cancun accounted for 7 per cent of the total. Holidays to Tenerife were its nearest contender but slightly less popular, amounting to 5 per cent of bookings. Holiday Hypermarket say the popularity of holidays to Cancun with Mancunians marks a recent shift in the city's booking habits that can be traced back to the its burgeoning youth culture.
Calum MacDonald, Online Marketing Manager for Holiday Hypermarket, comments: "It's no surprise to us at Holiday Hypermarket that Cancun's popularity with Mancunian travellers is on the rise. Cancun is known for its extremely lively nightlife, which is a big draw for young travellers from the city. When you consider that Manchester is home to a huge number of young professionals as well as one of the UK's largest student population, it's clear why this makes Cancun the destination of choice for Mancunians.
"On top of the fantastic nightlife in Cancun, Mayan ruins are but a stone's throw away for curious travellers, while the stunning white sand beaches and beautiful weather are enticing for those looking to escape big city living and Manchester's famously moist climate. Holidays to the Mexican Caribbean coast are getting cheaper all the time, making visiting this destination increasingly affordable for young travellers and ensuring Cancun's popularity will continue to climb in 2012."
