Currently, Puerto Vallarta is the national leader in economic reactivation and among the top beach destinations with the highest tourism recovery in Mexico. According to Luis Villaseñor, interim director of the Public Trust for the Promotion and Advertising of Puerto Vallarta, we are also expected to go over 60% hotel occupancy during the summer.
Villaseñor pointed out the average hotel occupancy during April was 55.8% and starting in May, and during the second half of the year, a higher number is expected thanks to, among other factors, the increasing vaccinations in the United States and Canada, as well as the resuming of congresses, conventions, and sporting events.
According to Villaseñor, with the Covid-19 vaccine application in the United States rapidly progressing, Puerto Vallarta (the main tourist destination in Jalisco) has seen an increase in the arrival of tourists from the US.
Luis Villaseñor added that, because Vallarta is economically dependent on tourist activity, it was among the first municipalities in Jalisco to receive the initial vaccine doses back in February, and was also one of the first to be certified by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).
