Travelers can enjoy trips to numerous Mexican destinations
Visiting Mexico is perfect for travelers of all ages, including those who are looking for fun-filled excursions that take them to exotic destinations. In fact, there are numerous Mexican hot spots featuring must-see attractions around the nation that many vacationers might not know about.
For example, Querétaro is a Mexican colonial town that has its own charm. This hidden gem has preserved its downtown over the years and has many beautiful spots that have helped it earn the nickname “Pearl of the Baijo.”
Additionally, those who visit Querétaro can find out more about what makes Mexico’s culture and history unique. The town highlights the nation’s multiethnic population, and even many Mexican citizens who work in the U.S. and send money to family members back home regularly will enjoy trips to this destination.
Mexico’s tourism sector may grow
Claudia Ruiz Massieu, Mexico’s secretary of tourism, is one of several Mexican officials who wants the country’s tourism segment to grow exponentially over the next few years. In fact, she called Mexico’s tourism sector a significant economic driver for the country, as it may help the nation boost its profits quickly.
As Mexican leaders explore ways to promote myriad tourist attractions, these administrators are making various improvements across the country. For example, Querétaro Today notes that the Mexico’s transport and communications ministry is examining the benefits of a potential high-speed rail link between Mexico City and Querétaro. The train would travel between 120 and 140 miles per hour, which would make it easier for visitors to make trips back and forth from Mexico City to Querétaro without delay.
“The Mexico-Querétaro train is a dream that we can achieve,” ministry spokesperson Gerardo Ruiz told the news source. “If they managed to build trains in the last century, I don’t see why we can’t achieve it in the 21st century.”
Mahahual-Chetumal Bridge could also impact many visitors
Mexican officials plan to construct a 20-mile bridge across Chetumal Bay, helping both residents and visitors. The bridge would extend over water to connect the two destinations, even allowing people to explore Xcalak, Mexico’s southernmost Caribbean outpost.
Meanwhile, several Mexican destinations are also proving to be popular choices for many brides and grooms. SmartPlanet notes that Puerto Vallarta and the Mayan Riviera were among the top selections for newlyweds in 2012, and roughly 200 weddings were held in these areas last year.
