Mexican Travel Industry Fights Swine Flu As We Plan Far-Off Travel

While the travel industry, particularly in Mexico, has been affected by mounting numbers of swine flu cases, there is a flip side to the worrying news: crime reports no longer take up front-page mentions as journalists cover more pressing issues. In some Mexican cities, face masks can be seen on about half of the population out in public, but tourists are already expressing interest in upcoming travel to Mexico once the virus passes.

If you were planning a vacation in Mexico at a luxury hotel and had to postpone it due to swine flu, take note that when you do visit, flights will be better than ever. According to a recent report in the San Francisco Chronicle, Aeromexico will serve more than 40 destinations in Mexico with new routes by the end of 2009. In addition, Volaris will be offering new daily flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Guadalajara and Toluca as part of a partnership with Southwest Airlines.

To repeat what we've been hearing all over the news, the most important thing to do is not to worry. By taking appropriate precautions and understanding current travel restrictions or recommendations, you are doing your part. Mexico will be there when swine flu passes, and that's why booking a luxury hotel now for a future trip is advantageous. Due to lowered customer demand, you can take the trip you've always dreamed of, and at a lower price point.

Or, if you're craving a vacation now, you'll face fewer crowds and impressive discounts in various locations, and that includes when you travel by car to your vacation destination.
