  • Hi Erick, your best bet may be to contact the US embassy in San Jose. Here's a WEbsite that shows that Costa Rica had 1,100,000 visitors in 2000, and 48.7% (535,700) were from the U.S. The % was provided by the US embassy, so that must be the place that keeps those figures. Good luck!
  • Erick, that's a tough one, because each country (France, Japan, South Africa...) only keeps statistics on Americans coming to it. So who would know this -- perhaps U.S. Customs?
  • Ed, I am looking for stadistics on travelers from US. Thank you for your help.
  • Erick, if I read you correctly (i.e. travelers to the U.S.), this might help you. For a bonus, it includes a breakdown on where the travelers came from. http://tinet.ita.doc.gov/view/m-2009-I-001/index.html. If I don't read you correctly -- if you meant statistics on travelers from the U.S. -- sorry.
  • I note that not only did Madelyn Miller not answer the question I posed (about how much she was paying for contributions to her various online publications), but the request for contributors to her new venture has been removed.

    Methinks she didn't want to tell the assembled media that she pays NOTHING for contributions to Travellady.com and her various other sites.
  • Does anyone have stadistics of US Travelers in 2009? I really appreciate a hand!
  • Riviera Maya is having a Jazz Festival May 27-30th. Hope this helps.
  • I have an assignment for an article on Mexico's 2010 Centennial/Bicentennial. Need info on events happening in Cancun/Riviera Maya, los Cabos areas.
    Thanks! John
  • Thanx Paul. I truly appreciate your energy and promptness. Enjoy your cruise. Do you have the PR person's email?
  • Cruising's not really in my bag of tricks, but what about the old give-'em-a-call approach? I can't count the times I've called a golf course or resort or CVB or provider seeking assistance.
