Mexican Tourism Secretary Gloria Guevara Manzo is heading to Moscow on Monday, her ministry reported.
“Mexico is interested in attracting a larger number of tourists from Europe, including Russia,” the ministry said.
“We propose that our guests vacation at wonderful beaches and inspect over 30 archeological zones connected with the rich history of the ancient Maya and Aztec civilizations,” the ministry said.
Over 27,000 Russians visited Mexico in 2010, which is 134% more than in 2009. The number of Russian visitors in the first four months of 2011 exceeded 14,000, the ministry said.
During her visit, Manzo is expected to hold talks with Vitaly Mutko, the Russian sports, tourism and youth policy minister.
