Despite the hammering of negative press from the mouths of TV pundits and news readers across the border, there are new stats that speak volumes about how enticing a place Mexico really is.
Just look at the figures released by the Mexican Tourism Board, SECTUR, showing that 2011 was a record breaking year for the numbers of tourist visiting Mexico. SECTUR announced that almost 190 million people visited Mexico in 2011.
Astounding numbers given the endless array of “warnings” and hyped up anti Mexican publicity, proving that people aren’t always swayed by whoever speaks their opinion the loudest.
SECTUR wants to focus in the coming years to make Mexico the 5th most visited Tourist destination
