Visit Mexico

Well, it appears as if the worst of the flu hype is over.

As restaurants, clubs, school and other businesses begin opening its doors again; it appears as though life will go on in Mexico. And hopefully the tourists will return.

Here’s a short 4 minute video Visit Mexico that will familiarize you with many of the features and attractions of this great destination.

Some of the benefits that I like about Mexico are that it is foreign yet familiar place to visit. Getting there is fairly easy with plenty of nonstop or single connection flight. Most of the resort destinations have been designed with the American traveler in mind so English is widely spoken here. Value for your dollar is also another major plus. Mexican vacations are much more affordable the comparable Caribbean or European getaways.

Due the flu scare many travelers have canceled their Mexican vacations or selected alternate destinations and Mexican tourism revenue is down, way down. I expect that there will be interestingly priced travel bargains and incentives offered to jump start the return of tourists to Mexico.

Viva la Mexico!
