Funjet Vacations has announced that statistics released by the Mexico Tourism Board show an increase of travel from Texas to Mexico by 12 percent as compared to last year. In December, more than 253,000 visited Mexico, compared to 224,000 the previous year, and in January 210,000 traveled south of the border, compared to last year's 196,000.
"The number of people flying out of Texas cities into Mexico is up 12 percent from last year, and December saw the most travelers for that month in a decade," said Mike Going, president of Funjet Vacations. "Year-after-year Mexico remains a top travel destination for both Funjet Vacations and the Texas market and we are optimistic about the forecast for 2011. We believe properly informed consumers will continue to desire the unique vacation experiences that only Mexico can offer."
