.... the number of flights to and from the US is off WAY more than 3%.... the number of cruise ship landings is way down too.
Hotel bookings, time share usage etc in PV are all way down again this year.......
Besides the crime increase in Mexico, is it not possible that some of this is also due to the terrible economy NOB? I know a fair amount of folks with adult children, well educated with marketable skills, losing their homes or having to take large loans from parents just to stay afloat. If you cannot pay student loans or find a job a "vakay" (vacation), as my youngest calls it, would be out of the question.
