Tourism & Mexican Spending


Tourism is the third biggest industry in Yuma County.  Yuma has plenty to offer travelers and tourists alike.  But there is no doubt that Yuma's winters are some of the best in the country and draw the majority of visitors between November and Aril every year.

Winter visitors enjoy the Yuma climate and all that it offers

Mexican visitors spend an estimated $2.2 billion on food, clothing, entertainment, and other activities in Yuma County each year, according to a speaker at an economic forum in 2012. That represents more than 6 percent of all taxable sales.  That spending directly supports more than 2,000 local jobs.

During the winter produce season, thousands of people cross the border every day to work in Yuma's fields. Many come back to spend their paychecks here.
