EL PASO -- The ongoing violence in parts of Mexico isn’t hurting tourism through all of the country.
While border towns struggle to attract visitors, Mexico’s beaches continue to be a popular destination for travelers looking for a little sun and fun.
Riviera Maya is located just south of Cancun, and is Mexico’s top tourist destination. A record 3.6 million visitors traveled to Riviera Maya in 2011, and that number is expected to increase in 2012.
