Mexico received almost 6.7 million tourists in March

The National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi) of Mexico reported that there was a year-on-year growth of 17.8%

Almost 6.7 million tourists visited Mexico in March of this year, which is 17.8% more than in the same month of the previous year, when slightly less than 5.7 million people traveled to the country, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi) of Mexico.

This figure is one of the highest in the last two years, only behind the month of December 2022, when more than 7.2 million travelers were in Mexico. In addition, to date, March has been the month of 2023 in which the country has received the highest number of tourists.

Of the total of 6.7 million, more than 3.5 million were international tourists, 7.9% more than in March of the previous year. Of these, more than 2.4 million came from countries that did not share a border with Mexico, air transport being the main route of entry into the country.

However, and despite the fact that total spending has increased by 9% compared to March 2022, average spending per visitor has fallen to 7.4%. In total, each tourist would have spent an average of $435.42, compared to $470.43 the previous year.

In terms of total spending, this would have risen to 2.91 million dollars. Of this figure, more than 2.5 million dollars came from tourists with whose countries Mexico does not share borders.
