Tourism up in Baja California
Numbers showing positive results overall for the state
Tourism numbers have slowly risen during 2012 for the Mexican state of Baja California, showing a 5% increase over the year. Juan Tintos Funke, the secretary of tourism for the state, released the positive numbers on Thursday, December 20th.
Results for hotel occupancy, cruise passenger stops, and border crossings have all improved for the state. Social stability in Tijuana has been applauded for helping in the recovery, as Tijuana and Ensenada have had the most improvements in tourism throughout Baja.
