Promote Your Community in Mexico

A few years ago when the swine flu scare was dooming the Tourism business in Mexico, a group of people got together in Puerto Vallarta and made a video telling the world, or at least that part of the world that was You Tube visitors that there was no Swine Flu in Puerto Vallarta.
