Mexico promotes gastronomy and natural wonders in the UK

London (Notimex) – Representatives from Los Cabos, the Mayan Riviera, Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa and the Chepe train are promoting tourism to those destinations to tour operators in London, during the first annual event organized by the Mexican Tourism Promotion Council.

“The aim of this event was to show in the UK that Mexico is a diverse country and promote destinations like never before,” said the council’s director in the UK, Vicente Salas.

The promotion team travelled to Edinburgh, Manchester and London.

The Chepe train company recently launched a luxury service, which transports 340 passengers through the mountains of northern Mexico, including Copper Canyon.

The team highlighted Mexico’s numerous flight connections. “For visitors from the UK, the easiest is to take a flight to Mexico City, and then a 45 minute flight to Ixtapa,” said Dessirée Dufóo, representative of the Pacific resort town of Ixtapa.

Thomson-TUI operates direct flights from London and Manchester to Puerto Vallarta.
