Every country has it’s own unique culture and qualities that set it apart and encourage travellers to explore. However, the World Economic Forum recently announced a comprehensive list of 136 countries ranked in order for the “Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017: paving the way for a more sustainable and inclusive future.” Mexico was officially declared the 2nd most beautiful country in the world, based on natural resources, another win for Mexico tourism!
For anyone who has visited Mexico, this isn’t surprising. Mexico is a vast country that encompasses many states, each with their own subcultures and landscapes. But how exactly do you measure a country’s beauty? World Economic Forum took into account a number of natural resources that could add to a countries beauty. These factors included the number of World Heritage sites, the number of species the country is home to, protected natural areas and the demand for natural tourism via digital platforms. The World Economic Forum then analysed and valued each of these assets. Mexico narrowly missed out on the top spot, beaten by Brazil, with Costa Rica coming in third place.
