Sectur is the government agency that oversees promotion of tourism, and tracking the flow of visitors. The most recent numbers show that in the first quarter of this year, Mexico reached a new high for tourist visits from abroad. 
More than 10 million visitors came in the first quarter of 2018, a 12% increase over 2017. That’s a big increase! The largest bump in numbers came during traditionally busy Spring Break/Easter Week in March.
This would seem to suggest that foreign tourists are ‘voting with their feet’, and deciding that the vacation experience that they get in Mexico outweighs the bad new that they hear about the country.
Enrique de la Madrid, Mexico’s Tourist Secretary, pointed out that the numbers show that the rate of growth for international tourists visiting his country is growing at 12% annually, while the global tourism industry as a whole is only at 7%.
