Monday, July 9, 2012

Mexico expects to set a record this year with at least 24.6 million foreign tourist visits, Tourism Secretary Gloria Guevara said.

Foreigners’ arrivals should increase by more than 5 percent from the 23.4 million visits received in 2011, Guevara added.

Latin America’s second-largest economy seeks to become among the top five international tourist destinations by 2018. The country currently ranks 10th, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization.
