U.S.A.-Mexican Flights Boom


Americans long lasting love affair with Mexican destinations continues unabated.
Not only the hordes of students heading South to Cancun for Spring Break but also families and seniors are all enjoying the Caribbean charms of Mexico's sea coast.With very competitive airfares and all year round sunshine who can blame them !.However, the Caribbean is a fiercely competitive market with plenty of island and mainland destinations to choose from.
So, here we take a look at the Mexican market.

The US-Mexican market has grown 27% in ten years with over 34.6 million seats.In fact, capacity is struggling to meet demand, however airfares remain attractiveAmerican Airlines is leading the way with 22% of seats closely followed by United and Mexican carrier Aeromexico.But it's not just passenger numbers,last year saw a surge in new destinations; both from legacy carriers like American, and Low-Cost carriers like Volaris.There are plenty of flights to Mexico !.The United States, Canada, and the U.K. make up the biggest tourist groups.

So why Mexico ?.
Well, the first thing to observe is that it is safe. Although Mexico has its fair share of crime, this is away from the resorts which are themselves well policed.
The beaches in Mexico are clean and seem endless. Resorts such as Cancun dominate the market with a broad range of hotels and leisure facilities including water sports as well as excursions, casinos, quality restaurants and night-life.There are many reasons that Mexico is one of the most visited countries on the planet.
Mexico hosts an ancient and fascinating culture and history.First came the Aztecs and the Mayans, leaving behind some breath-taking architecture including Mesoamerican pyramids.Not for nothing was Mexico called the 'Egypt of the Americas' in the nineteenth century.In a taste of things to come, we also see multi-storey apartment blocks built to accommodate the burgeoning population of this ancient civilization.The country boasts many UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE sites.
Teotihuacan is one of the most important archeological sites in Mexico and can be visited via a day trip from Mexico City.The capital itself is also an important historical and cultural center including the old city which houses archeological. ruins, a magnificent Cathedral, the Spanish Viceroy's Palace and the Residence of the short-lived Emperor Maximilian.Tula, the ancient Toltec capital, is also architecturally and culturally important. Mexico City Airport has regular flights to many U.S. destinations with great value airfares
Mexico's second city, and home of mariachi music and tequila.The city has something of a European feel to it.Famous for its many museums and galleries,the city combines an underground arts scene, a world renowned Spanish language Book Fair as well as excellent shopping.

We make no apology for returning to the topic of beaches because, frankly, that is what Mexico is fundamentally about (in tourism terms).Top beaches include Cancun, Acapulco, Playa del Carmen, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. The latter is especially famous for Marlin fishing.For those who want to get off the beaten track the beaches of Bahia de Navidad are a must. San Carlos is popular with seniors in the winter months.
Cultural Tourism
As befits its rich cultural history, you can visit numerous locations that display arts and crafts.
Pottery, Rugs, blades, Copper goods, glass,  baskets, and furniture all feature.
It is also a good time to be in Mexico for one of the festivals.Mexico is a very Roman Catholic country, and most festivals are centered around Saints Days and other important religious events.Other fun festivals include the International Pasty Festival in Real Del Monte and the wonderfully named Night of the Radishes (Oaxaca).
Puerto Vallarta Gourmet Festival is a must for foodies, with cooks from all over the globe demonstrating their cuisine.There is also wine tasting and various grand dinners.
Wine making was brought to Mexico with the Conquistadors and has flourished 90% of Mexico's wine is produced in the Baja California area. Wine enthusiasts can follow the Ruta Del Vino which features over fifty vineyards.
Mexico is a multifaceted tourist destination with lots to offer both the discerning tourists or the humble Beachcomber.That is why Mexico continues to endure and grow, as a first-class tourism destination. Airfares are good and the flights available.And of course, its proximity to the United States can only help.
