Itravel2000,a Travelzest company and leading Canadian travel organization,has released a list of the top 12 destinations worldwide for 2012 and Mexico has made the list,not just once,but twice! The stunning Riviera Maya was named the number one destination for the coming year,followed by Cancun,which came in at number four.
The list of top destinations was compiled using online booking trends and actual customer inquiries for travel in 2012 and reveals that emerging destinations are currently all the rage among international travelers.
“We are seeing an interesting turn in consumer travel patterns this winter season,” said Jonathan Carroll,who is president of itravel2000 and CEO of Travelzest. “Though traditional destinations such as Orlando,Cancun and the Riviera Maya have remained favorites,many Canadians are booking their travels to emerging destinations as well. It is great to see the shift,and we look forward to providing consumers with the best value on their travels.”
The Riviera Maya enjoys close proximity to Canada and the United States,and it is easy to find an affordable flight to and from the region,making it a popular choice for North American travelers. It is also family-friendly and offers a number of eco-friendly destinations. This year,it is likely to attract additional attention due to the various Mayan ruins that can be found in the area.
Cancun real estate has been a favorite getaway spot among savvy travelers from around the world for more than 35 years and continues to be one of the most popular destinations in all of Mexico. Cancun is home to a number of eco-parks,first-class golf courses,ancient Mayan ruins and a wide variety of water sports,among other activities,and truly offers something for everyone.
