Today is World Tourism Day

Mexico's Secretary of Tourism Gloria Guevara recently named Mazatlan, Mexico, as host of Mexico’s 2011 World Tourism Day. World Tourism Day is an annual event that has been celebrated all around the world since 1980 in hopes of increasing awareness on the role of tourism within the international community and to demonstrate how it affects social, cultural, political and economic values worldwide.

This year's theme is Tourism-Linking Cultures.

Mazatlan, Mexico, rich in its own culture and history, attracts tourists to Mexico all year round. Secretary Guevara explains, “Mazatlan is one of the most attractive destinations in our country. The city hosts large events such as Carnaval, it boasts great infrastructure for conventions, and is easily accessible by land and air. That is why it is one of the destinations with greatest potential.” Story continued on Mexico Today.
