Mexico Tops the Lists for 2012 Travel

The country of Mexico is topping many travel lists for 2012.

As a voracious headline news reader, I always keep my eye on Mexico. And in the last month or so, I’ve been really happy (and relieved) to see some great headlines about our southern neighbors.

It’s no secret to those who have previously traveled to Mexico that it offers the most value, the best selection of colonial and beach destinations, the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Americas, more biodiversity than one can imagine, world-class hotels, resorts, boutiques and villas, world-famous chefs and cuisine, old-world cultures and languages, modern art, stunning architecture and landscapes, a thriving culture calendar, festivals and people as warm as the weather.

As a long-time visitor to Mexico, I can assure you each experience will be different depending what kind of traveler you are, but if you are a first timer to Mexico or not one of the more than 22 million visitors who traveled to Mexico last year, you will be in for a treat.

This, in fact, is why Mexico is topping the lists of the most trusted travel guides in the world along with other sources for 2012 travel. Here is just a sampling of the headlines I’ve seen lately:

Mexico on the 2012 Global Calendar:

Mexico is also one of the number one destinations in the world for weddings – famed wedding designer to the stars as seen on Oprah, Colin Cowie is introducing his new wedding collection packages in Mexico in 2012 featuring chic designs inspired by the beauty of Mexico. “Nobody in the world throws a party like Colin Cowie,” Oprah said. “Colin’s thoughtful details can fuel your imagination and provide great ideas for parties in any price range.”

Mexico has been designated as the host country for the 2012 World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) first Regional Summit May 16-18 May in Cancun, Quintana Roo, by the Mexican Ministry of Tourism.

Los Cabos will host the 2012 G20 Summit, which will be held in June 2012. The destination’s first-class hotel and airport infrastructure were noted as two important factors in the decision. “Los Cabos has the exclusive appeal, a contemporary tourism infrastructure and the safety record required to host an event of this global caliber,” says Gonzalo Franyutti, President of the Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau.  As a haven for VIPs throughout the world, Los Cabos is truly the ‘Window to the World’ for Mexico.  We look forward to welcoming the G20 delegates and attendees to our destination.”

Even the Pope is planning on visiting Mexico in Spring 2012! With Mexico topping so many lists for 2012, we hope to see you there.
