Terry Denton is the President of Travel Leaders of Fort Worth, Rowlett and Tyler, Texas and the Publisher of the blog Travel By Terry. In a recent blog post, Denton responded to some of the news stories that paint an inaccurate portrait of tourism in Mexico.

Statistics: Such as the fact that 23.4 million international travelers visited Mexico in 2011, an all-time record.
