Cancun and the government of the state of Quintana Roo continue to make progress increasing Internet access for travelers.
In the last two years, officials have added 17 Wi-Fi and three access point modules in the area, with a simple premise: more internet means more free publicity from travelers sharing the travels with their own social networks.
“Being connected to the Internet at any time and anywhere, from any mobile device, is a must for travelers — and a way to spread and promote the natural beauty of the Mexican Caribbean,” the government of Quintana Roo said in a statement.
That Wi-Fi expansion has covered both the tourism hub of Cancun and other locations including Tulum, Isla Mujeres, Isla Holbox and others.
It’s a push that we hope spreads across the Caribbean — as it has in other destinations like Curacao, which several years ago added free Wi-Fi across downtown Willemstad — and Antigua, which recently launched free Wi-Fi in its cruise port.
