According to Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism Gloria Guevara Manzo, approximately 10.4 million travelers are expected to visit Mexico in the last two weeks of 2011. This number would represent a 4% increase in tourism when compared to the final two weeks of 2010.
In celebration, the Mexico Today Program has initiated the hashtag #10MillionTourists and are encouraging anyone who will be celebrating the holiday season in Mexico this year to share their thoughts, photos, video, and more on Twitter via the hashtag.
The initiative is not just for tourists, however. If you live in Mexico and would like to join the conversation, follow #MexicoToday and #10MillionTourists on Twitter!

Some dicey topics in this week’s edition of PV Podcast: Welcome to Paradise including me getting robbed, the Mexico Today Program, the guy who got his penis chopped off. And as always, we spin some of our favorite tunes in between. Don’t forget to leave a comment about what you think of this week’s topics!
As some of you already know, I have been chosen as one of sixteen bloggers from the US and Mexico to be a contributing writer for a new initiative called Mexico Today. Mexico Today is the culmination of a lot of hard work put forth by the Mexican Government/Private Sector; Marca Pais – Imagen de Mexico; and Ogilvy International, and its primary goal is to shed some much needed light on the beauty, the importance, the culture, and the safety of Mexico.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of being flown down to Oaxaca for the kick-off event, which was a total blast (you can read more about the event at the Journey Mexico Blog), and I’d like to say how proud I am to have been chosen to be a part of such a talented and inspired group of writers. You can learn more about the members of Mexico Today and read their work at the Mexico Today Facebook Page. You can also follow along in real time by searching #MexicoToday on Twitter.
Because I am being compensated for the work I do for Mexico Today, I am required to publish the full disclosure that you see italicized below. Anything you see published here on Simply Vallarta or on Twitter from the SimplyVallarta account containing #MexicoToday was written for the program and represents my, Chase Buckner, opinions alone.
