Mexico: Airbnb key figures 2018

According to data reported by Airbnb, travelers that use this rental platform in Mexico generated 2.7 billion U.S. dollars in tourism revenues in 2018, putting Mexico in the top ten ranking of countries with the greatest Airbnb direct economic impact in the world. This impact was calculated based on host income and estimated guest spending.

On a survey, most Mexican hosts (71 percent) said they used the platform to have an additional income, while about 51 percent claimed to use the money earned through renting their accommodation to pay and maintain it. On the other hand, half of the guests surveyed said they spent the extra money they saved by staying in Airbnb rentals on the local businesses of the communities they visited.
