We talked about intrigue in getting outside of our borders Panama Colombia South Korea.
We got -- on the focus a little bit on what's going on and neck with Mexico Mexico struggling a little bit.
With tourism because well I -- a lot of people out there think it could potentially be unsafe.
Gloria Gomez with a straight now secretary of tourism for Mexico and I'm so glad you're here because it's kind of a misconception is that.
Yes absolutely actually prison is stopping Mexico was really nice is that we have -- a diversification strategy.
To bring more people tomorrow nationalities -- -- -- 45 nationalities that -- lesser.
Which is very encouraging -- But what it what about the United States are the people are Americans coming back or do we hear the headlines that.
It's Mexico's dangerous this drug wars drug cartels.
Let's just go to the Bahamas and be safe last year we received 22 point four medium people from different destinations.
70% of those usually come from the UN as well well have seen is less than my accounts are traveling abroad in general now.
You take a look at the data from the bottom of garments from the UN -- you'll find that the number one this initial for Americans by far this Mexico.
Number one by air if you by -- is actually doubled the size of the show that we have because they find greater value for their money.
So about -- one reason why traveling to Mexico.
You'll also find that we have we have it -- factor once -- in Mexico and we have a chance to talk to someone has been in Mexico recently that will tell you -- that there is to destinations are fine because Mexico simply relax country.
Yes we have a challenge but the challenge is very localized in the borders sees the specifically in some of them not all of them.
And they're very far from the first of the C and I think that's appoint an easy reiterated.
So people typically go to where Cancun.
Cause some -- -- they might put them made and you could kind of a one of these have been my and the culture of places are.
Compared to are they going to Kabul for instance the shape of nervousness over my -- but the idea about what I had a Mexico City.
-- percent of right that they go to those listings and that you're saying is nowhere near.
Where they dangerous drug whatever is going on right now capsule in my -- -- to travelers is very simple talk to someone who was in Mexico has been in Mexico on that we'll tell you that is fine you can enjoy embassy though these.
-- this nation's.
Or get a map and -- and you'll see exactly where visitors to decisions are.
I'm aware of these points are very vocalize and -- five so when I was -- -- where's the bad.
Places in -- a small portion of the border.
And then a little bit of sound of that and that's very is in the v.s -- between one of those towns son I don't come corn.
12100 miles and that's pretty far right and that's totally fine and -- -- -- so why do things assassinations.
So my kids they tend to make.
And one could argue.
Not -- he's placed on the planet by any stretch right.
They're literally when they I get on the -- tells me don't mean the result aren't making anyone who looked at the airports.
It's not safe by any stretch but we go we see -- a little resort -- we come home.
Why is -- why -- Jamaican guy and the same kind of bad -- if I can as Mexico while that's a very about it question and adventuresome question as a matter of fact there's a huge gap.
Between our reality and the percent -- we're trying to do is -- is that gap.
Because if -- -- -- the crime rates that we have in victory is succeeding is that we various surprises there very very low comfort to the drastic decisions.
Not only in degree in metals -- the US.
And they actually fine that's why last year we were some 22 point four -- people love of gasoline out counting this six me and that we received by cruise.
And -- without counting their feet the one medium across the border have lunch.
Went to the doctor it does its business in Mexico and the border known.
So if you only count the ones that his state overnight -- 22 point four million people that's a lot of people to be wrong and it adds an I don't know exactly but you make -- me is a little peanuts compared to the size of Mexico your country's -- bigger than to make it and so.
-- I could arguably might be much closer to danger in Jamaica than I can as you said in Cancun.
Absolutely well -- Mexico also you say some pretty large country.
I mean the Western Europe fits in in Mexico it just to put things in perspective -- v.s -- between.
What of these tourist destinations for instance on where we have some challenges is like saying on both allows -- as because that is going on the New York.
This is very far far away now I'm excited to could announce right -- and at the same time.
Is that you know that we -- of the border very extends border with the US and some of the citizens of whereas great we do business all the time.
As if you go to the back haven't.
Companies like you will see that that wine festival which has recently there you can have lobster.
In a study sort of goes south of -- at nab has pretty nice so notice also they say this -- -- that is borders without you saw an element in the minus on Ellison's -- If today and is some other places in the border -- totally fine solid I would say just be aware aware -- -- hotspots art.
Usually those hot spots are not tourist destination like 99 for some of those are.
Very far away.
And what we say is that -- use senators to distance of the country is quite large sun and the winds have the same if something happens in the US and ideas on -- principles I mean I cannot come to New York may have had very clear.
And you're saying is just that to communicate exactly that's -- and it's the other way.
Now you had a very about it question where we get -- much attention as much -- right.
I don't that I am very I don't know I've -- -- because you -- United States and -- -- somewhere.
We'll probably that that's the reason by -- -- every single country has challenge this including house.
We are working on those challenges making a lot of tourists but at the same time tourists and tourism is up.
We have a great offer you can have a greater value for your money and then have a great it's so I've never been wish I got.
What -- -- -- -- -- see because you can enjoy a beautiful when Rickles on and its decisions like -- Acapulco idea on how one of those very popular than what delinquent new like sustainability.
And then everything related to this in abilities of this mission that is 100% sustainable certified by -- yeah.
And it until the weather suit is consistent is very nice and everything has to be yes a culture of this nation.
You can visit the one of the my allocations -- is now would say.
The fact that the Canada ends next share they're going to be very popular and I was statistics and -- academic idea that -- -- what.
Into the -- think correct eleven minus believe.
That is that the meaning of the -- -- have may have been very -- act of addicting attic you know axis of -- -- and things like that and and the EC is a huge appetite for us to show -- the world the contribution from the mine asked not only to the Mexicans but to the rest of the world they -- tell me you have to go executive talking to you.
