“The Trump factor” is a strategy a number of Mexican tourism groups are proactively dealing with as the President of the United States encourages Americans to spend their travel dollars even more locally than they already do.
And we don’t need to mention his treatment of the county’s neighbours.
After Americans and Canadians, Australians are the 3rd most common traveller to Los Cabos over the last few years. Certainly, Mexico has always held great appeal to Australians, as it is quite exotic and different to the Asian destinations on our doorstep.
Los Cabos, also a favourite of the Hollywood celebrity, is safe and English is widely spoken, which appeals for those who want a luxurious and relaxing break.
Located on the tip of the Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos is made up of two cities- San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas joined by a 30-kilometre corridor. Its unique location in the desert and being surrounded by mountains and the Sea of Cortez on one side and on the other, the Pacific Ocean makes for a striking landscape.
A quick 2-hour flight from Los Angeles and temperate weather all years round makes Los Cabos an appealing place to escape the current Sydney winter.
“The people are wonderful and friendly. The food is wonderful, whether you want cheap street type food, or a gourmet meal, it’s all there. The scenery of ocean meets desert is beautiful, please come and be our guest” Rodrgio Esponda Managing Director Los Cabos Tourism.
We think we just might.
