During the first months of 2016, Mexico is positioned among the top destinations for luxury Tourism, according to data from Virtuoso, an award-winning magazine published six times a year. With a circulation of 175,000 sophisticated travelers (who receive the magazine through their advisor), each issue features experiential luxury travel at its best, with tips and insight from Virtuoso advisors and travelers.
Virtuoso is also a travel luxury agency recognized worldwide.
Mexico’s Ministry of Tourism presented this report, stating that the nation leads the Top 10 luxury destinations of the world, a listing selected by agencies and companies dedicated to sell services to this market niche. Mexico is the favorite destination for travelers during winter and spring.
The travel agency noted that Mexico has exotic destinations, warm climate and a wide variety of places to visit, making it one of the favorite destinations for many tourists who want to escape their daily routine or cold temperatures back at home.
According to Virtuoso, one of the factors that influenced Mexico’s top position on the listing is its geographical location and proximity to the United States.
The Ministry of Tourism also announced that from January to November of the previous year, 7.5 million North American passengers arrived into the country, which represented a 16.7% increase over the same period in 2014.
These figures show that 18% of Americans who traveled overseas, made it to Mexico, which represents the highest percentage in history, and is also proof of an uninterrupted increase in the share of this market of travelers to the country.
The Ministry of Tourism says these figures are due to the improvements that have been made on air connectivity issues, the finance sector, and the continuity of strategies to promote Mexico overseas.
The ranking led by Mexico, features as runner ups: Canada in second place, followed by Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, South Africa, Argentina, India, Chile and China.
