With tourism in Latin America on the increase in recent years, Miriam Chesner explores the region's most visited countries and destinations.

MORRIS PLANES, NEW JERSEY, USA, December 21, 2018 / -- Latin America continues to prove a huge draw for international travelers, thanks in no small part to relatively recent global sporting events such as the 2016 Summer Olympic Games and the 2014 FIFA World Cup. This, says Miriam Chesner, a New York University graduate and cultural expert from New Jersey, has supported a tourism sector compound average growth rate of up to six percent annually in the last few years, according to figures from the World Tourism Organization. A continued yearly compound average growth rate of around five percent is expected to continue until at least 2022, the same figures also show.

"With Brazil, Argentina, and Peru currently chief among the most visited countries in Latin America, it's attractions and destinations such as Porto Seguro in Brazil, Mendoza in Argentina, and Cusco in Peru which are drawing in new and repeat overseas visitors to the region like never before," New Jersey-based Miriam Chesner explains.

Of Porto Seguro, Brazil, she reveals, "As vibrant as any part of Brazil, Porto Seguro is attracting visitors thanks to its historical sites, street fairs, renowned restaurants, and performance art, all of which reflect many of Brazil's most popular cultural traditions."

"Mendoza, Argentina, meanwhile," Chesner continues, "is perhaps best known for its wonderful wine, home to more than 1,000 vineyards, with the bustling city also drawing large numbers of adventure travelers thanks to its abundant skiing, climbing, hiking, and rafting opportunities."

New Jersey resident Chesner also touches briefly on Cusco, Peru. "Cusco," she says, "is epitomized by its stunning textiles, lively festivals, and archaeological wonders, with Incan beauty and Andean baroque style architecture also existing perfectly side by side along the areas many wonderful streets."

Of growing visitor numbers to Latin America, Chesner goes on, "More recently, visitors from China, in particular, make up perhaps one of the largest groups of overseas tourists in terms of growth rates among new international travelers, with individuals from the East Asian nation developing a particular love for Latin America in the last few years."

Visitor numbers from China, Miriam Chesner further goes on to reveal, are also up partly as a result of travel for business purposes, as corporate relationships between Latin America and countries in the Far East, such as China, continue to strengthen.

"Tourists from North America, however," she adds from her office in New Jersey, wrapping up, "still make up the largest group of overseas travelers to Latin America, something which is likely to remain the case for many years to come."
