Report Confirms Fewer People Visiting Mexico

La Opinin, Posted: Apr 22, 2010

MEXICO CITY New data published by the National Institute of Migration shows that the number of people crossing the border into Mexico declined sharply in the first quarter of 2010, according to Spanish-language daily La Opinin. Roughly 31,000 fewer people have crossed the border into Mexico so far this year, compared to the same period in 2009, representing a decrease of nine percent. The abrupt drop in travelers coincides with ongoing violence in Mexico that is attributed to drug cartels, and recent travel warnings issued by the U.S. government. The Mexican economy has suffered as a result. According to the Bank of Mexico, revenue generated from tourism in May dropped by 49 percent nationwide, compared to the same month one year ago. The decline represents a loss of more than $500 million, the most severe drop in nearly 30 years.
