The Mexican Caribbean City of Cancun Beat Out The Likes Of Paris And New York
Cancun is finishing the year on a high after being announced as the second second most popular destination in the world for 2021.
The ranking stems from a statistical report compiled by Forward Keys, who track airline and tourism trends in real time.
The top 20 is an insightful look into what has been a turbulent year for the tourism industry. Although drastically more successful than 2020, when the sector virtually shut down for a year, the absence of some typically high ranking countries and the rise of others could be a glimpse of years to come. It remains to be seen if many of the destinations, including Cancun, can capitalize on the growth shown this year.
