Most travel friendly countries revealed

The World Economic Forum's Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index is out and it’s kind of interesting.

This is not the list of “friendliest” countries to visit. It centers on things like infrastructure, things to see and other metrics. It’s not about whether or not Joc was friendly to you at sidewalk cafe in Paris or the Avis agent in Curacao cursed you because you didn’t fill up the rental car upon return.

This is about brass tacks and what it takes to lure travelers to a particular country and to keep them coming year after year.

Spain, France and German are in the top three spots with the United States coming in at No. 4.
