What's Too Touristy?
Lately, I've been reading about places that are too touristy. What's that mean to you? Do you look for a place that has been mentioned frequently on travel shows and in travel blogs? Or, do you look for someplace that isn't too touristy?
For instance, the Galapagos Islands control how many people they allow to visit at any given time. Many museums do the same and you pick a time when you book your tickets.
But, places like Cancun and the Riviera Maya exist for tourists. You probably expect to see many people and it doesn't really feel too touristy.
What's your definition of too touristy? Does it affect your travel plans?
