Puerto Vallarta, MexicoFor the first three months of 2017, around 9.3 million visitors brought in $5 billion (4.6 billion Euros) in revenues to Mexico.

Gerardo Corona, of the federal Tourism Secretariat, Sectur, on Thursday said, “Tourism in our country is enjoying one of its best moments in history. Never has there been such a first quarter for the arrival of tourists at this level and in terms of revenue.”

Last year saw a total of 35 million visitors to Mexico, an increase of 9 percent over the previous year, bringing in $19.6 billion in revenues, according to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

“The New York Times” named Mexico City as the number one place to go in 2016 and “Conde Nast Traveler” named San Miguel de Allende the fifth best city in the world.
Best performing markets in Mexico were the Riviera Maya, Cancun, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit.

Most visitors to Mexico come from the US, followed by Canada, the UK, Argentina, Colombia, Spain, Brazil, Germany and France. The number of visitors from the US increased by 12 percent last year over 2015, according to the UNWTO. In 2013, Mexico had fallen to 15th place in the world tourism list due to problems with security and crimes.
