  • Mexico Tourism Board: More Americans are going to Mexico

    2010-11-03

    According to the Mexico Tourism Board, more international travelers are going to Mexico this year than the previous year, and much of the increase in tourism has been driven by American travelers.

    The Mexico Tourism Board has calculated that the period of January to August of this year has seen a 19 percent increase in international tourism to Mexico over the same period last year, the New York Times reports.

    Furthermore, 61 percent of international tourists to Mexico are Americans. This year, four million Americans traveled to the country, representing a 15 percent increase from last year, according to the news source.

    Alfonso Sumano, a staff member of the tourism board, justified the demand by claiming that Mexico offers value for visitors' money.

    "In addition to having several of the top sun and beach destinations of the world, Mexico has 30,000 archeological sites, 110,000 monuments and 31 Unesco World Heritage sites," he explained. 

    Whether Americans plan to travel to Mexico for the beach, the archaeology, or the natural beauty, they will find airlines meeting their increased demand. Several airlines, including Continental, United and Delta, have all unveiled plans for additional routes to popular Mexican cities.
