When it comes to international travel, there is one destination that attracts more American travelers than any other: Mexico.
Mexico remains the most popular international destination for US travelers, and the country continues to grow in popularity, setting a record of more than 38.3 million visitors in 2022.
According to Mexico News Daily, May was another record month for tourist arrivals to the country, at 3.3 million, 9.3% more than in the same period of 2022.
Here’s why Mexico remains the top destination for American travelers:
1. Ease of access
Mexico is a short flight away for most American travelers. For example, there are direct flights to Cancun from 38 cities in the United States.
Most US travelers can reach Mexico in two to five hours by plane, and the sheer number of flights means there are usually good deals on airfare available. Mexico’s accessibility is just one reason it’s so popular with American travelers looking for a hassle-free vacation.
2. All-Inclusive Resorts
Another of the biggest attractions in Mexico are its all-inclusive resorts. All-inclusive resorts have changed recently, attracting a more diverse range of travelers than ever before.
New all-inclusive resorts are opening in Mexico all the time, and these resorts provide a relaxing vacation at what can be a really good price compared to comparable vacations in the US or Europe.

3. Great Beaches
While the US has some beautiful beaches, it’s hard to argue that any of them can compete with Mexico. Mexico is known for its stunning beaches on the Pacific and Caribbean coasts.
Cancun remains the most popular destination in Mexico, while Cabo has quickly become the second most visited destination in Mexico and continues to grow in popularity. Whether you’re interested in surfing, water sports, or just relaxing on the white sand and soaking up the sun, Mexico’s beaches are a huge draw for travelers.
4. Digital nomad hotspot
Another reason that Mexico continues to gain popularity among American travelers is that it is a great base for digital nomads and remote workers.
Whether you want to work remotely for a week on a “workcation” in Mexico or spend several months living and working in the country, Mexico has plenty of destinations that are perfect for digital nomads and those interested in trying out the style of life.
Mexico can be a very affordable destination for American travelers, which is another reason why it is so popular. Although prices have definitely gone up in many popular destinations in Mexico (Tulum, for example, is just as expensive as New York City), there are still great deals to be found.
Traveling in Mexico, especially outside of the more touristy beach destinations, can still be extremely affordable and offer good value for money.
6. Various attractions
Mexico is much more than its beaches. Although most travelers go to the beaches, the rest of the country should not be overlooked.
Mexico City is a diverse and vibrant metropolis, perfect for a city break, while the many Magic towns (Magic Towns) are cultural treasures worth exploring. Whether you’re interested in history, culture, art, or food, Mexico has something to offer for every type of traveler.
7. Reasons to keep coming back
Finally, Mexico remains the most popular international destination for American travelers because the country offers so many reasons to keep coming back.
It is a huge country with a lot to explore, and new things are constantly happening. For example, the next Mayan Train will connect many destinations in the Yucatan peninsula and is expected to open at the end of this year.
