Cancun is the fifth most visited city destination in the Americas behind four United States cities, and No. 1 in Latin America.
The only other Mexican city in the top 100 is Mexico City, which ranked 88th with just over 2.4 million visitors last year. Hong Kong, Bangkok and London took the top three places.
“One factor in Cancun’s slight decline in the rankings is due to the fact that nearby destinations such as Cozumel and Playa del Carmen performed excellently . . . recording double-digit [percentage] increases in the number of arrivals,” Euromonitor analyst Amanda Bourlier told the newspaper El Financiero.
She added that insecurity in the Caribbean coast city had not appeared to deter many tourists.
