Top LatAm Travel Websites: 31% of Mexican Internet Users Look for Travel Content Online

What: We looked at the number of Latin American Internet-users (and particularly Mexicans) who looked for travel information online in February.
Why it matters: Only 25% of Latin American Internet users were interested in travel websites in February, about 1% less than December 2017. For Mexico, the drop was 4%, from 35% to 31%.

Among the major topics Latin Americans like to browse online, travel is not a favorite. While about 90% of Internet users in this region look at entertainment content and 50% browse on e-commerce sites, only 25% are interested in travel information. As shown in the tables below, TripAdvisor is still the number-one site for Latin Americans' travel plans, while Uber heads the list in Mexico.
