More Vacationers Choose Mexico

Reading the Financial Times on Friday, I found an interesting article on tourism in Mexico. It talks about the latest official figures on travel to Mexico and how the number of foreign visitors rose 8.1% in April of this year, compared to the same month in 2010. The level of visitors is back up to 2008 levels, when the amount of travelers reached an astonishing 22.4 million.

Moreover, Mexico continues to be the most important destination for US citizens traveling abroad, representing 14.7 per cent of the total.

As the article says: "And, even if you don’t believe it, the world’s big hotel and tourism companies appear to: private investment in Mexico’s tourism sector grew to more than US$900m in the first three months of this year – an increase of 127 per cent compared with the same period last year."

Impressive figures that clearly express the surge in tourism to Mexico and interest from investors in this wonderful country.
