Tourism to Mexico grows 9 percent




Guadalajara (Notimex) -- Foreign tourism to Mexico grew 9 percent in the first four months of the year, compared with the same period a year ago, the country's Tourism minister Enrique de la Madrid said.

The figure represents 12.5 million visitors.

During that period, tourists spend $7.6 billion, 10.6 percent more than the same period in 2016.

"From January to April, we had 230,000 occupied hotel rooms every day, which means 15,000 more than the same period last year," de la Madrid said.
