ith winter and the season for
warm-weather vacations approaching, it seemed timely to conduct an
online survey to sample agents' opinions on Mexico and Caribbean
There are three main draws for Mexico as a vacation spot,
according to the 805 agents we polled: economical or value travel
(chosen by 69% of survey respondents), romance/wedding/honeymoon
travel (64%) and family travel (64%).
Yet a majority of agents do not see an increase in consumer
interest in Mexico other than its beaches.
When it comes to the topic of the Caribbean, over the next two
years agents predict an increase in such Caribbean niches as family
travel (picked by 63% of agents), honeymooners (57%) and spas
