Mexico Tourism on the Rise in 2007

According to Mexico’s Tourism Secretariat, the tourism industry in Mexico is continuing to grow, with a 15% increase in revenue since 2006.
The Mexican government feared that new passport requirements in the US would discourage American tourists from going to Mexico. However, more Americans are traveling to Mexico this year than last, showing that passport requirements have not deterred travel across the border.

Since Hurricane Wilma devastated tourism in Cancun and the Mayan Riviera in late 2005, the region invested millions of dollars in renovating hotels and resorts. After several upgrades, these properties have now re-opened and guests can enjoy an even more luxurious experience.

Destination weddings in Mexico are likely to follow an upward trend as hotels receive more guests throughout the year. With more tourists, upgraded properties, and increasing wedding services, Mexico’s destination wedding industry is sure to be a success in 2007.
