The top tourist destination in Latin American countries is Mexico, but a new survey has revealed that it is also one of our most popular destinations.
More than two-thirds of respondents in a survey conducted by travel website TripAdvisor said they would like to visit Mexico, which has the third highest number of foreign tourists to the US after Australia and China.
More Mexican tourists visited the US in 2015 than any other foreign country.
Travel experts say that’s because the country is known for its incredible culture, history and food, with many of its attractions being accessible to foreigners.
And while many of Mexico’s attractions are free, many of them require a reservation.
There’s also a big difference between visiting the country for its culinary wonders and spending a weekend at one of its top hotels.

“If you’ve been to Mexico, you know it’s a place where you can get a lot of things for a relatively low price,” said Jason M. Zebron, a travel writer and host of the Travel Blog, who was one of many participants in the survey.
The survey also found that many Americans, including some of the country’s most famous chefs, think Mexico is a good place to visit.
And in a recent survey, the tourism website TripItalia found that Mexicans were more likely to visit the US than any of its European peers.
The website surveyed more than 1,000 people in the United States, Canada and the UK and found that 52 percent of them had visited Mexico, compared to just 21 percent in the U.K. and 20 percent in Canada.
While the popularity of Mexico among US tourists is on the rise, many American residents have their own reasons for wanting to visit and the survey showed that many people who live in states like Texas, California and New York have strong views of Mexico.
“If you live in Texas, or California, or New York, you’ve heard of the drug war, you’re familiar with the cartels, and you’re not going to go to Mexico for that,” said Zebroon.
“But if you live near the border, you hear about all these cartels that are doing things that are hurting the country.”
But while Americans might not be eager to spend a week in Mexico, Zebrol said that many other Americans are, as well.
“A lot of people are just getting their minds around it,” he said.
“And that’s where it’s just so interesting to see how Americans are feeling about Mexico, and how much they’re willing to spend.”
