The invasion continues….

6 July 2013

So much for that meme that tourists had stopped coming to Mexico:

Via The [Mexico City] News:

The number of international tourists who arrive in Mexico by air increased by 7.5 percent in the first five months of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, according to figures from the National Migration Institute. The Tourist Secretariat (Sectur) issued a press release on Thursday stating that 5,237,035 visitors flew into Mexico during the first five months of 2013, up from 4,871,029 in the previous year.

By far, the largest number of tourists come from the one country where people say “I’d never go to Mexico”:  From January to May,  2.8 million visitors arrived from the U.S., more than half of the total number of tourists.

Mexico’s next-largest source of tourists was Canada, with 944,000 tourists, followed by the United Kingdom, with 154,000, Argentina with 129,000 tourists and Brazil, with 113,000.
