Los Cabos witnesses good number of visitors in spite of increased homicide cases

Published on : Sunday, September 3, 2017

Los CabosTravelers are continuing to pour in Los Cabos in Mexico regardless of the increase of homicides. Tourists seem to not get influenced by the government warnings.

 
Los Cabos today was hit by the tropical storm Lydia. This powerful storm collapsed mass lands early this morning. This killed four people along with a baby. This resort town went through a tough time this year. Huge rise in murders has already threatened this place, a more than 200 percent rise in the last few years. The violence compelled U.S. officials to initiate a travel warning for the destination for the first time. However, NPR’s Carrie Kahn explains that in spite of the issuance of warning and violence, the tourists kept on pouring in.

 
Los Cabos tourism officials share the same opinion that this year they anticipate to reach the 2 million visitor benchmark, of which the majority are Americans. Nevertheless with constant cases of killings, more than 230 in the initial seven months of 2017 along with a week old travel warning, it might be too early to say how tourism is holding up.

 
Some officials have expressed anxiety, particularly after the recent attack in which the gunmen killed three people on a popular beach last month, compelling tourists to hide.
