A Recent Survey Deems Mexico Safe For Tourists

With all the negative news pouring out of Mexico, it is understandable why your passport may be staying firmly put. But the Mexico Travel Alert has been widely misinterpreted by the media and consumers. According to a recent survey conducted by The Mark Travel Corporation (a parent to Funjet Vacations), U.S. travelers who take common sense precautions have found Mexico to be just as safe and enjoyable as ever.

From March 6-15, over 900 responses were received from travelers who visited Mexico between October 2008 and March 2009. Of the 900, 97 percent said that they would return to Mexico, and 90 percent agreed to the statement, “I felt safe and secure.” Of that 90 percent 92 percent traveled in 2009, an increase from the 88 percent who traveled in 2008.

Only 9 percent reported that they felt unsafe at some point during their trip and less than one percent felt unsafe while on a resort property.

"The survey respondents confirmed Funjet's position that Mexico continues to be an amazing, safe and fun vacation destination. The results should give other travelers confidence to plan a Mexico vacation," stated Mike Going, President of Funjet Vacations.
