Predictions released in August this year by the Mexican Ministry of Tourism show positive figures for Puerto Vallarta’s hotel and resort occupancy. According to an article published online by Hotel News Resource, the popular resort is expected to report 80% occupancy and to receive nearly $80 million dollars in revenue from tourism and leisure related industries. This comes as welcome news to the many businesses and individuals in Puerto Vallarta who depend on tourism for their livelihoods and heralds a return to the former success of the beach destination.
Initiatives reported by Hotel News Resource to have helped inject new life into Puerto Vallarta include a wide scale campaign to promote the destination as well as Riviera Nayarit in foreign countries as well as throughout Mexico. Improved infrastructure and accessibility were also quoted as having a positive effect, with Hotel News Resource indicating a number of new flight routes planned for the city.
For those who have visited Puerto Vallarta, the positive figures come as no great surprise. The port is packed full of wonderful activities for families, couples and groups of friends in addition to spectacular scenery and excellent resorts. As the economy begins to heal worldwide, it is no wonder that an incredible destination like Puerto Vallarta would be quick to reflect this positive trend.
