Mérida, Yucatán — A second City Express Junior is quickly rising on the Periférico, bringing 106 more hotel rooms on seven floors when it opens in October.

It’s a sign of a hotel boom that has overtaken the city. The newest properties are catering to business customers and budget travelers.

Already five floors have been built, using a foreign company that has hired 50 Veracruzano workers, according to Diario de Yucatán.

The chain’s first Mérida hotel is on the Prolongación Paseo de Montejo, next to the Peninsula Lifestyle Center.

Two tourist hotels recently opened: one by the Salvador Alvarado stadium, and another by the Prolongación tunnel — the former “Burger King Circle.”

Diario reports that more tourist hotel projects are in the works, but have yet to be announced publicly. The new convention center on Calle 62 between avenidas Cupules and Colon is triggering at least one of those investments.

Aside from hotels, shopping plazas are springing up in the north and west. Paseo Canek, on Avenida Jacinto Canek, is aleady under construction.
