Mexico Favorite Foreign Tourist Destinations

Mexico Favorite Foreign Tourist Destinations
Mexico was the number one travel destination for American Tourist in 2004 according to Department of Commerce.

Wonder if they know the spelled the name of the country Colombia wrong? I got this data from the Encyclopedia Encarta.

This information is of negligible value, unless you are like me and semi-look for list of countries to not visit. I was scrounging around try to figure out why the prices of Mexico are five time higher than when I was here 8 years ago, just takes the fun out of going to Mexico when you have to pay a lot of money to live in globally non-competitive quality of rooms. What you get for the money is on the lower rungs of the world, however I truly doubt anyone cares.

I guess in a way, I try to think in these terms:

Which countries are easy to go hang around in?

I think I would have to remove Mexico from the list, revise my map on the index of and not include in Barefoot Hobo Travel.
