eTravelBlackboard: Misperceptions still a reality for Mexico tourism
Turism&Travel Mexico is much safer than most people think, says Alfonso Sumano (Image Mark Harada) Putting to bed the myths about travel to Mexico remains high on the agenda for the country’s tourism authorities, says Mexico Tourism Board regional director of the Americas, Alfonso Sumano.

    In an interview with e-Travel Blackboard, Mr Sumano spoke of the “gap between perception and reality” regarding safety in the country before stressing the importance of being “clear and transparent” with the dispensation of information to travelers.    Providing the public with “as much information as possible” would enable potential visitors to make a “very well informed decision” about security in the country, he said.   “There are certain issues going on in certain, very specific pockets of the country – but when you go to a resort areas or a colonial city in Central Mexico you are very far away from those problems.” “It’s like avoiding New York because there’s trouble in LA. “That is one of the issues we need to address.” The U.S State Department last month expanded its warning of non-essential travel to 14 states in northern and Central Mexico, but according to Mr Sumano, tourists are beginning to put into context the issues the country faces. “We have 2,500 municipalities in the country – 90 plus per cent of the issues going on as reported by the media, those are in just 85 of those, which means less than five per cent of the whole territory,” he said. Meanwhile, Mr Sumano has backed a plan by the Mexican Secretary of Tourism for the country to be ranked amongst the top five most visited nations in the world by 2018, labelling the task as “doable”. “It is an ambitious goal but this goal is doable,” he remarked. “Mexico has the power and the people to do it.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H
