He stressed that Mexico is open to tourism, ready to welcome tourists no matter where they are, as well as being a destination rich in places like Cancun, Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta and many others, that have not been affected in any way by the quake.
“The way its people reacted to adversity, should lead us to support them and continue to visit Mexico. The country is open to tourism because, as I have always said, Mexico is a world in itself”, he said.
