According to Funway Holidays, celebrities are driving an increase in holiday bookings to Mexico.

In the New Year, Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted on holiday in Mexico and was snapped on the beach, and more recently tennis superstar Rafael Nadal returned to Mexico for a holiday.

Rebecca Evans, senior marketing executive for the operator, said: “The British public look to follow in the footsteps of the rich and famous on their holidays. Mexico is amongst our top destinations to receive the greatest increase in bookings for this year. No doubt helped by the latest James Bond film, Spectre, which used Mexico as its main film location. The celebrity effect has definitely had an effect on our bookings to Mexico which are 73% up year-on-year.”

The operator is offering seven nights at the all-inclusive, five-star Valentin Imperial Maya from £1,155 per person including flights with Virgin Atlantic from Gatwick based on June 7 travel and two adults sharing.
