Warm & Sunny Mexico

According to a recent survey by Smith Travel Research, 7.1 million tourists visited Mexico from January to August of this year. Hotel occupancy rates in Mexico were generally up 10% and the number of international tourists arrivals in Mexico were up 27.5% in July alone.

With the impending drug/violence scenario and Mexico travel warning, why are people still traveling to Mexico? Because in many cases Mexico is conveniently right next door and as always, it offers fantastic value for your vacation dollar.


Even though the U.S. Department of State has issued a travel warning for parts of Mexico, it doesn't affect the popular tourist areas of Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Acapulco, Cancun, nor the Riviera Maya.

While it's still advisable to avoid travel in and around border towns including Coahuila, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Durgano, Tamaulipas, and Michoacan, the rest of Mexico has proven to be safe for tourists.

The U.S. Department of State travel warning goes on to remind potential visitors that millions of U.S. residents safely visit Mexico every year along with the thousands of citizens who cross the U.S./Mexico border daily for work or studies.
