- Fodor’s has the most comprehensive selection of resort and restaurant reviews in the region.
- This edition has beautiful new photo-filled features on the area’s best beaches and snorkeling spots, plus up-to-date reviews on resorts and restaurants that have reopened since COVID-19.
- The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 caused a steep drop-off in tourism to many destinations, but surveys have shown an ongoing interest in international travel once it becomes safe again. The number of Americans traveling overseas is expected to increase in mid-2021, once vaccinations are available to a wide variety of people. Destinations that have plentiful outdoor activities, beaches, and room to distance in nature (such as Cancun and the Riviera Maya) will likely have an edge.
- Before 2020, Mexico was the 7th most-visited country in the world by tourists. Mexico was also the top destination for U.S. citizens, drawing 26 million visitors annually. More U.S. citizens traveled to Mexico than to Europe and Canada combined (total 24 million).
