The pandemic has not been the only aspect that has impacted the travel industry, the volatility of the exchange rate has also been a determining factor in the reactivation process. 

January 2022 was characterized by a high dollar, whose average was $4,000.72 and in which the maximum value was presented on the 5th with a rate of $4,084.11, this being higher than that of any day in 2021.
