The US State Department recently updated its travel warning for Mexico causing travelers concern; however, Erik the Travel Guy wants vacationers to know that Mexican vacation hot spots are safe and, typically, are thousands of miles from the locales cited in the travel warning. Additionally, according to the American Society of Travel Agents, 2 of the top 10 vacation destinations for winter travel this year are in Mexico: Cancun, the most popular international destination this season, and Riviera Maya.
“The Mexican tourist destinations frequented by North American travelers are safe and continue to be popular,” commented Erik the Travel Guy. “A lot of intelligence is considered before the State Department issues a travel warning and the Mexican warning is for very specific geographic regions. When reading the updated warning, it quickly becomes apparent that it’s not directed toward our favorite vacation spots. And, yes, those spots in Mexico we all love to visit, including Cozumel, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, ?Playa del Carmen, ?and Cabo San Lucas, are indeed safe.”
Travel to Mexico is big business, it’s the 10th most visited destination in the world and the number 2 most visited destination in the Americas with 22.5 million vacationers traveling to Mexico each year.
