As a recent article on Boston.com points out, the media coverage of Mexico’s drug cartel violence in specific areas of the country has contributed much to its massive drop in tourism. Because of this, informed tourists are able to take advantage of incredible travel deals at 4 and 5 star resorts. Says travel writer Melanie Nayer:
“Mexico’s tranquility is located only 45 minutes from the Cancun airport in Riviera Maya, home to all-inclusive resorts and luxury developments, biospheres, eco-facilities and, of course, some of the best water activities….it’s not unlikely you’ll find rooms at four- and five-star resorts for as low as $175 a day per person, including all meals, activities, rooms with a view, and often resort credits good for spa treatments, gift shop purchases and tours.”
