MEXICO CITY, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - The number of tourists from Russia in Mexico increased threefold in the past two years, Mexican Minister of Tourism Claudia Ruiz Massieu said in an interview to Itar-Tass on Monday.
The number of Russians visiting Mexico has grown considerably, she noted. The rate rose 18.9% in the first half of 2013 as compared to last year's same period. This year, 55,400 Russian tourists have visited the country.
Mexico works actively to develop contacts with travel agencies in Russia, she noted.
Russians visit well-known Mexican resorts, first of all Cancun, where Aeroflot and Transaero have direct flights. Most Russians rest on beaches in the country. However, Mexican companies try to attract attention of tourists to historic monuments in the southeast.
Mexico is interested in developing ties with Russia in tourism, the minister said, noting that Mexican citizens also had interest in Russia. The Russian tourism market is important for the country, she said.
The growth of tourists’ amount from Russia in Mexico is the largest as compared to the rates of other countries, the minister noted.
