Two Mexican cities are among the 50 best places in the world to travel in 2023 due to their tourism offer and the needs for sustainability and care for the environment.
Time magazine made this ranking in which it included remote and family destinations, as well as others that include gastronomic offers, as well as spaces that have changed over the years and increased their cultural offer.
In the case of Mexico, the publication did not consider specific tourist destinations, but rather entire cities that offer a wide range of attractions and experiences for all types of tourists, be it sports, gastronomy or the offer of museums and concerts, for give some examples.
The publication points out that the tourism industry is at its peak this year after the effects of the COVID pandemic, which since March 2020 has been in crisis with the closure of destinations and the lack of visitors derived from the health emergency.
