Strong visitor numbers have launched Mexico back into the top 10 tourist destinations in the world but growth of the country’s tourism sector has not been what it should in the view of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
During the past decade, the rate of growth of tourism in Mexico has fallen short of the overall growth in the world economy, explained OECD secretary general José Ángel Gurría recently during the presentation of the organization’s Review of Tourism Policy in Mexico.
“The fact is that tourism and travel have encountered various difficulties including economic problems in countries that are significant sources of visitors to Mexico, natural disasters linked to climate change, public health warnings and insecurity in several regions of the country.”
The secretary general observed that tourism in Mexico is also facing structural challenges, as the sector’s success has been based on the development of large resorts in major coastal destinations.
“Half of all hotel beds in Mexico are in resorts in just eight cities, concentrating the effects of tourism in a handful of geographical locations. However, this model is becoming vulnerable to changing demand patterns and environmental concerns,” he said.
