International luxury travel network, Virtuoso has revealed its top destinations for the upcoming 2016 summer travel season, with a Top 10 and Hot 10 list.
Mexico has been named in their Hot 10 list of destinations for summer travel.
The Virtuoso Hot 10 are the countries that have seen the largest percentage of growth in year-over-year bookings. Mexico is up 48 percent.
Mexico, a more typical winter travel destination, is benefiting from inexpensive direct flights from the United States (U.S.) as well as reasonable hotel rates.
The Virtuoso Hot 10:
1. Tanzania (+98%)
2. Portugal (+88%)
3. Ireland (+58%)
4. Brazil (+53%)
5. Mexico (+48%)

Data is sourced from Virtuoso’s United States and Canadian-based travel agency members and reflects future travel for June, July and August 2016. The Top and Hot 10 lists represent international travel only, so neither the U.S. nor Canada is mentioned on them. The findings were announced during the group’s annual Symposium taking place in Cape Town this week.
