According to the Wall Street Journal, Americans that used to flock to Cancún for vacation are now thinking about it twice.
The Mexican resort city saw a surge in 2021 and 2022, but tourist priorities have changed.
American travelers are having fun in the sun, but they’re thinking beyond old standbys like Cancún. U.S. travelers put the brakes on trips to Cancún and neighboring Riviera Maya this spring, turning their attention to destinations like Europe, Japan, and other parts of the Caribbean.
The number of U.S. travelers flying nonstop to Cancún—the biggest Mexican resort region—fell slightly compared with the same period a year before, according to data from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration.
