14 Mistakes Most Tourists Make in Mexico

14 Mistakes Most Tourists Make in Mexico Anyone who has been to Mexico has likely experienced one of these three things — if not all three: 1. Cancún. 2. Tequila shots. 3. Señor Frog’s. And while these are certainly all things you can do in Mexico, they aren’t necessarily things you should do in Mexico. In fact, you can say that about a lot of things tourists do when they visit or plan a trip to Mexico for the first time. I’ve traveled to Mexico more than 100 times. In fact, for the last three years, I’ve spent my winters living south of the border, exploring new destinations but also escaping the cold in my favorite spots.

Amid Border Strife, Mexico Beach Town Asks: Where Have All the Tourists Gone?

Amid Border Strife, Mexico Beach Town Asks: Where Have All the Tourists Gone? Rosarito, Mexico, is usually bustling with throngs of young Americans. But on a recent visit, the town south of Tijuana was desolate, with locals blaming turmoil at the border — and a migrant caravan.

Bulb fields close to the Netherlands' North Sea coast are a major tourist drawcard each spring as tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and other flowers bloom and transform the region into a patchwork of vibrant colors that provide the backdrop for many a holiday snap or Instagram post.

The visitors, however, increasingly are walking into fields, damaging flowers and the bulbs so new signs are urging tourists to enjoy the view but to stay out of the fields.

While visiting tourists pour money into the region, the damage they do to plants also comes at a cost. If a tulip plant is trampled, the bulb it springs from will not grow sufficiently to be sold.

A similar campaign last year was seen as a little too unfriendly so new signs have been made and farmer Simon Pennings said he plans to place "ambassadors" in fields to explain to tourists why they should stay out.

Tourists are flocking to locations threatened by climate change. That only makes things worse.

Tourists are flocking to locations threatened by climate change. That only makes things worse. “Last-chance tourism” is hastening the decline of destinations like the Florida Reef and the Galapagos Islands. Plopped in the Florida Reef is a 4,000-pound bronze Jesus named “Christ of the Abyss.” The statue is one of the most photographed sites in the Florida Keys, and at Lobster Trap Art you can buy his portrait printed on ceramic tiles for $24. Like many of the products at this local photography shop, pictures of Christ of the Abyss look almost photoshopped — Jesus being circled by tropical fish, a sea turtle, and a shark.

One of the new banners, with the text "Enjoy the flowers, respect our pride," was placed next to a field Wednesday, but didn't deter a visitor from walking into the field to snap a photo.

Pennings has seen it all before.

"Bicycles, people, dogs, children, we see it all" in the fields, he said.

"Last year, I had one field with 300 tourists in it," said Pennings. "Managing the tourists was almost a full-time job."

Tourists Are Causing Headaches In Japan.
Until recently, Japan didn’t have much of an influx of foreign tourists. Now, it does, and with that comes problems. Of course, Japan should have a thriving tourism industry! This is a beautiful country with a rich culture, a long history and delicious food. But for much of the 20th and 21st century, foreign tourism in Japan didn’t really exist. There are obvious reasons for that: a World War and expensive air travel are the easiest explanations. Yet even during the 1990s, there weren’t many overseas visitors.
