While in Vancouver for the CLIA cruise 3 sixty conference, I attended a seminar on Mexico. I was happy to learn that the country known for mariachi, mayan ruins, beautiful beaches, and yes tequila is making a come back.. The
negative press on the violence in Mexico caused many cruise ships to pull their itineraries out of the west coast. The peak in Mexico for number of cruise sailings was in 2008 with 300 sailings. Sadly in 2013 there were only 80. In
2014, Princess, NCL, and Holland America are all returning. This is great news for the people of Mexico whose livelihood depends on tourism. It’s also great news for people who live on the west coast and enjoy the convenience of sailing out of California.
The specific details of the latest travel warning for Mexico, issued by the U.S. State Department on July 12, contained no essential changes from the last warning that was issued on Nov. 20, 2012.
Still exempt from any warnings or advisories are the tourist destinations of Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, San Miguel de Allende, Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City, the Riviera Nayarit, Oaxaca, Huatulco, Puerto Escondido, Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Tulum, Merida, and Chichen Itza.
You can feel confident in visiting these destinations. If you are looking for a good value in a vacation, Mexico is a great consideration. How do you feel about visiting Mexico?
