How violence in Mexico affects tourism statistics worldwide: Tripadvisor Awards 2014 Travelers’ Choice

Vacationers are still afraid of the Mexican drug wars, cartels and violence, despite the fact that nowadays we don’t read as much in the media about deaths related to drug violence as they said three years ago (except except recently. ” Guerrero “mass murder).

Each year, Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel and tourism website, publishes a ranking of Travelers ’Choice Awards for global, national and regional tourism benefits in a number of categories. The 2014 award figures clearly show that vacationers still enjoy visiting Mexico, but they are really comforted by the comfort, safety and security of Mexican all-inclusive resorts and prefer them to others around the world.

Mexico is not at all included in the world categories “Best Small Hotels”, “Best Hotels”, “Best Ascents”, “Favorite Restaurants” or in the more general category “Best Destinations”. It really got one rating in the “Best Beaches in the World” category as ten out of 25 places for “Playa Norte” on Isla Mujeres. Similarly, he ranked for the best hotels in the world, but only for the resort of Saint Regis Punta Mita in Punta de Mita. And presumably because of the dollar / peso rate, it has placed rooms 21 and 25 for commercial hotels in the world, respectively the Bungalow (Cape San Lucas) and Luz en Yucatan (Merida) hotels.

However, it is in the “Best Resorts in the World” category that Mexico really shines, assuming when viewed in short supply in other categories, so that the public still fears for its safety due to Mexican drug violence, cartels and war. but to make vacationers feel safe and secure while at an all-inclusive resort, isolated from everyday Mexican life.

In the category of the 25 most popular resorts in the world, “Mechanism” Mexico ranked 11, including the top five of the eight places. Here are the impressive results:

1) Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso (Playa Paraiso)

3) Favorite hotel (Playa Mujeres)

5) Excellence Playa Mujeres

6) Spa Resort Le Blanc (Cancun)

8) Secrets of Maram Beach Cancun Riviera (Playa Maroma)

19) Club Med Ixtapa Pacific (Ixtapa)

21) Secrets of the Silversands Riviera Cancun (Puerto Morelos)

22) Palace of Cazumel (Cazumel)

Mexico is usually a safe country for vacation. Just stick to any place other than places where there is rampant drug-related violence and drug wars. Of course, enemies who have never even been here will disagree. Consider, for example, safe havens such as Chiapas, Oaxaca, San Miguel de Allende and similar encapates, the Yucatan, Pacific resorts … and yes, all inclusive. Be no more and no less prudent than on holiday in any other developing country, and, on balance, you should be fine; and even better enjoy a trip to Mexico, not even more than other vacation spots.
