Puerto Vallarta’s position as one of the best vacation destinations in the world looks to have been confirmed this summer by predictions for nearly 80% occupancy in its hotels by the end of the high season. These figures reported by the Ministry of Tourism were discussed by Hotel News Resource in an online article published August, 2013 which looks at some of the reasons for Puerto Vallarta’s positive recovery following the economic downturn that has gripped the world these last few years. The article states how nearly $80 million dollars were expected to trickle down into the economy during the summer season. This information is promising for the hoards of businesses and individuals who depend on tourism for their livelihood.
Some of the initiatives said to be at the heart of these favorable statistics are related to the huge marketing campaign in place to advertise the assets of Puerto Vallarta abroad and throughout Mexico. In addition, a number of airlines have increased their routes to the destination, including flights to Great Britain intended to start in 2014.
Puerto Vallarta rightly deserves recognition; it is a unique location surrounded by the Sierra Madre Mountains, rivers, waterfalls, jungle, sandy beaches and one of the largest bays in North America, Banderas Bay. There are so many activities for visitors to enjoy from adventures in the jungle to tours on and beneath the sea. Puerto Vallarta is one of those destinations that no matter how hard the crisis, people come back year after year after year!
