According to José Guadalupe García's report for news site AZ Noticias, Puerto Vallarta is held a 100% occupancy rate for the Semana Santa and Easter 2018 season.
In an interview with AZnoticias.mx, Ludwig Estrada Virgen, Regional Director for Jalisco's Secretary of Tourism, mentiones that just as in previous years, the tourist influx for the destination has been surpassed with 25 thousand hotel rooms counting as registered. Ludwig also said the increase in visitors can be attributed to people visiting family members and friends in our port, people coming over to their beach houses for the holiday and taking advantage of timeshares.
The Regional Director also noted that the occupancy was registered from this past Wednesday (March 28th) until Saturday, March 31st, with most tourists expected to start leaving on Easter Sunday. He also pointed out that the economic benefits for these past two weeks will reach $500,000,000 (five hundred million) pesos, overtaking the $422,000,000 for the same period in 2017.
'There's enough for everyone, and we're really a tourist destination where everyone is welcome,' reiterated Ludwig. Finally, he added that March will close with an 85% occupancy rate, also higher than last year's 82% for March.
