Mexico's tourism sector depicted growth during 2010-2015, driven by the government's investment towards the promotion and development of the tourism sector. Following the depreciation of Mexican currency against the US dollar, inbound trips from the US to Mexico increased by 23.8% in 2014 and 9.4% in 2015. Due to the appreciation of the dollar, many Mexicans preferred domestic tourism spots over outbound destinations.
-Mexico's travel and tourism sector recorded growth during 2010-2015, supported by an increase in international arrivals, mainly from the US. The currency depreciation was one of the major factors that led to the growth of inbound tourism, reaching 31.8 million in 2015. The increase in the number of domestic and outbound trips can be attributed to moderate economic growth and declining unemployment rates, due to which the number of domestic trips reached 232.3 million and outbound trips totaled 20.4 million in 2015, with almost 90.3% of outbound tourists traveling to the US. With the help of the tourism board's promotion, Canadean expects inbound tourist volume to grow at an average annual rate of 7.54% over 2016-2020. The volume of outbound tourists from Mexico is expected to rise at a forecast period CAGR of 8.3%, to reach 24.6 million by 2020
-An Air Transport Agreement was signed between Mexico and the US in December 2015, which will help airlines increase passenger traffic while keeping the fares affordable. Previously, there were restrictions as only a limited number of airlines were allowed to fly on this route. However, after this treaty, the airlines will be free to fly on any of the routes between Mexico and the US
-Apart from the record visitors to Mexico in 2015, Mexico City has topped in the New York Times' list of 52 places to visit in 2016. Moreover, for 2016, Guadalajara has also been designated the second best place to travel by Travel + Leisure magazine. With its continuous strong performance, Mexico improved its UNWTO ranking, from number 15 in 2013 to number 10 in 2014. Considering its recent accomplishments, it is thought to be fighting for ninth position in 2015
