The beautiful beaches of Mexico are luring UK travelers  to Latin American shores. Despite recent violence in other areas of the country, Mexico has seen not only steady traffic from UK tourists, but has actually experienced an influx of UK tourists in recent months.
American Express recently conducted a survey which discovered that purchases of Mexican pesos has risen among UK tourists, although demand from Thailand and New Zealand has declined. Amid the recession, United Kingdom tourists are now more than ever on the lookout for budget vacations that still have the allure of exotic beaches and cities. Mexico has provided just that. With the country's all-inclusive vacation packages and great exchange rates, vacationers are getting their money's worth, particularly in Cancun and Mexico City. In fact, the influx of UK tourists is so great that some experts are concerned Spain's tourism industry will suffer as interests shift to Mexico.
