Many sports benefit from Mexico’s natural beauty and unique backdrops, a fact not gone unnoticed by professional sporting event planners.

Bright future forecast for sports tourism
The increased popularity of Mexico’s sports tourism sector echoes travel developments on a global scale. The World Tourism Organization predicts that sports tourism will be the second most important travel segment by 2020.

Sports tourism’s bright future recently prompted Mexico Tourism Secretary Rodolfo Elizondo to underscore the importance of developing this segment during a national sports tourism conference.

“Sports tourism plays an important role in the evolution of Mexico’s tourism industry. As we continuously improve infrastructure and sports tourism offerings on both a local and regional level, Mexico’s position as a sports tourism destination will be solidified, more jobs will be generated and we will attract investors,” he said.

Elizondo went on to mention that Mexico’s active support of the sports tourism sector is part of Sectur’s strategy to diversify the country’s tourism offerings beyond its already-successful products like sun and beaches, nature tourism, and cultural tourism, among others.
