A report issued by the Mexican Ministry of Tourism last August painted a promising picture for Puerto Vallarta. Hotel News Resource quoted the figures in an article that suggested a rise in hotel occupancy in Puerto Vallarta of up to 80%, with tourists spending up to $78 million dollar.
These figures demonstrate the consistent yet slow improvements to the economy after the recent credit crisis. Hotel News Resource mentioned that these figures could be attributed to the measures taken in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit to promote the destination worldwide, especially in the USA and Canada.
The article also quoted improved accessibility and infrastructure to be among some positive factors influencing the figures. Puerto Vallarta is set to receive more direct flight routes, including flights from Manchester and Gatwick in the UK as well as new routes from the USA: New York JFK, Philadelphia and St Louis.
What these figures mean for the local economy can only be positive and reaffirm that Puerto Vallarta continuers to be a great designation for investing in vacation ownership.
