Just a quick intro to an article that speaks for itself…
The message is consistent with the many other articles we’ve reposted on this blog: Huatulco is a great and safe choice for people who want to participate in the richness of the Mexican culture.
“The Canadian government’s travel advisory for Mexico is one level higher than the baseline: “exercise normal security precautions.”
I think despite this hidden reality, the glaring headlines that promote the negative events in Mexico remain top of mind for the vast majority of Canadian tourists.
As a Canadian who shares a deep love for travel with the other tourists of the world, I find it incredibly sad that there is such a misperception of what Mexico offers tourists.
“…out of more than a million Canadian visitors a year, many of them on a seven-day beer-and-tequila binge in the hot sun, they are statistical anomalies. The same statistical anomalies that inspired Air Canada, in an internal memo last week, to suggest downtown hotels in Winnipeg are too dangerous for its staff.”
As per the quote above from this article, I think once the media puts a slant on a particular destination that causes eyebrows to raise or concerns to grow, it’s just as easy for tourists to move on to another destination option.
The only thing I can do is continue to share these credible resources to promote the beauty, culture and adventure that awaits those who are willing to look beyond the propaganda.
