Now's the Perfect Time to Visit Mexico
Posted on 11/01/2017
Despite being impacted by multiple earthquakes and hurricanes in recent months, Mexico is open for business.
Last month, Mexican tourism officials reassured travelers that airports, attractions and accommodations were operational while encouraging visitors to keep their plans in place.
The Mexico Tourism Board reiterated that point Monday, confirming that all of the nation's destinations are open and operating normally.
The board said tourism regions—including Los Cabos, Cancun, the Yucatan and Puerto Vallarta, among others—were unaffected by September's earthquakes.
Day of the Dead celebrations are ongoing across the country and Mexico City recently hosted a successful Formula One Mexican Grand Prix.
In Puebla, hotels are open and operational. While some museums and other attractions may be undergoing repairs, the board says most are open to the public for normal visiting hours.
Morelos' iconic spas are also in business ahead of the holiday season.
"We are grateful to report that our tourism destinations are open and happily welcoming visitors from all over the world," Mexico Tourism Board CEO, Hector Flores said in a statement. "We have been in close communication with the destinations and can confirm that all popular attractions, airports and main tourist areas are operating normally."
"Visitors are experiencing the same hospitality, beautiful people, pristine landscapes and beaches, lively colonial towns and cities for which Mexico is famous."
There are a handful of reasons why fall is arguably the best season to visit Mexico. Now, whether travelers already have plans to experience Mexico or are considering making them, they can do so with confidence.
