Tourist traffic to Mexico has risen sharply in the past 12 months according to a new report from Visa and travel website Expedia.
“Hotels.com (which is owned by Expedia) reported that bookings have increased by 25% in the past year,” says the report and credit card operator Visa has revealed that “people spent 10% more (from $4 billion in 2009 to $4.4 billion in 2010) on their credit cards” in Mexico during the same period.
Expedia now lists Mexico as being one of its top three travel destinations worldwide.
Tourism Secretary Gloria Guevara Manzo has said that the country is achieving “real and sustained progress in making Mexico safe and secure.”
The Ritz Carlton will soon open a new 124-villa complex in Cabo overlooking the Sea of Cortez and Spanish hospitality group Sol Melia is planning to develop two flagship resorts at Riviera Maya on the Caribbean coastline.
