The “Let’s All Travel through Mexico,” National Campaign is designed to enable low income families to travel within the country inexpensively.

The program serves a dual purpose: it will enable more Mexicans to discover the greatness of their country; and allow them to help stimulate the national economy at the same time.

An alliance was achieved between the main actors in industry, civil society and the three levels of government in order to boost the tourism industry nationwide by taking advantage of under-used capacity during low season.
