Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – “With the arrival of thousands and thousands of visitors both by air and by road, Puerto Vallarta will have the best vacation period so far during the pandemic,” said the municipality’s director of Tourism and Economic Development, Ludvig Estrada Virgen.
He indicated that there are great expectations for the Semana Santa and Pascua holidays, the highest since 2019, when he recalled that records were reached in air operations in the destination. “Many people are arriving by road, foreign bus companies implementing extra runs, in addition to the fact that the high cruise season continues, all of which makes the destination experience moments like they have not had since the pandemic began.”
Hotel occupancy will increase these days until it surely reaches one hundred percent on some days, to which must be added tourism that uses hosting platforms, that rents houses or apartments and those who visit friends or relatives, all of which will leave a very important economic impact.
Estrada Virgen informed that the offices (Downtown, Marina Vallarta, Parque Hidalgo, Parque Lázaro Cárdenas and El Pitillal) and modules (Playa Camarones, Playa de Oro, and Malecón) of the dependency will be open every day of the vacation period in order to inform visitors and address complaints in conjunction with the Ministry of Tourism.
In addition, he called on service providers to offer quality care so that visitors have the best experience. “We are achieving good results since the last months of last year thanks to the collective work of hoteliers, restaurateurs, and all other service providers, but all of us who live here must also contribute by maintaining a clean place; we must remember that we have been qualified as ‘The Friendliest City in the World’,” he said.
According to SECTUR, Puerto Vallarta could achieve an average general hotel occupancy during the vacation period of 78.5%, the highest in the country.
