Tourism facts: Imagine if there was a positive spin on visiting Mexico. Even in spite of negative reports about safety in Mexico, country visits increased by 20 per cent in 2014 up to 29.1 million visitors with the average dollar (USD equivalent) spending per visitor being $552. International tourists spend on average $900 per trip when you break out business and other visitors.
The strong US and Canadian dollar vis a vis the Mexican peso is certainly part of that, but in the end Mexico is loved for its beautiful playas, ease to get to, variety of tourism experiences,and great word of mouth from tourists who go back home and relate personal experience that all is well.
- Watch for a continued growth of adventure travel as well environmental and volunteer activist travel.
