According to RealVail.com an independent, online news and lifestyle site bsed on Vail, Beaver Creek, and the Vail Valley, in the State of Colorado; Vail is the most popular ski destination in the U.S. with more than 1.6 million visitors this past winter season, but it’s also one of the top spots for Mexican tourists year-round, making it an ideal location for a burgeoning sister-city relationship with San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

“We’ve gotten our international guests – and it’s primarily Mexico – into the double digits,” said Kelli McDonald, economic development manager for the Town of Vail. “It’s 10 percent in the summer and the winter. They’re not only coming here to visit, but many of them are buying real estate, they’re moving into our community.”

“There’s no question about that,” acknowledges McDonald, who adds that there is a high level of cooperation statewide.

“I will tell you that the Mexican consulate in Denver is extremely active. We have a really good relationship with that office, and three of their representatives came up here for a full day of activities with the San Miguel de Allende delegation when they were here.

”Everyone from Vail real estate brokers to restauranteurs to ski instructors will tell you that the Latin American market – and mostly guests and second homeowners from Mexico now that the Brazilian economy has slowed – carried Vail through the worst of the recent Great Recession.
