Description

During the 1960s, the Hippy movement created an environment that allowed a new kind of tourism to thrive. Tourism to Latin America, primarily Mexico specifically, increased during 1960s and 70s as a result of the psychedelic renaissance. The tourism in question here would become known as psychedelic tourism. This provoked Mexico into deporting and demonizing those tourists and creating a new kind of tourism whilst also significantly impacting those rituals and native peoples that partook in highly secret psychedelic rituals that have existed for thousands of years.
