2021: An Excellent Year for Puerto Vallarta

At the end of this 2021, Puerto Vallarta is once again positioning among of the most preferred destinations for both nationals and internationals visitors.

During this December, our destination has reached an average of 75% in hotel occupancy, which represents an increase of 26% compared to last year. Likewise, it is expected that during these holidays (December 20th to January 5th), 81% hotel occupancy will be reached.

In this same month, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport has received a total of 2,437 domestic and international flights:
· 1,158 from the United States
· 998 from Mexico
· 266 from Canada
· 15 from Europe

This represents an increase of 49% compared to 2020 and 15% more than in 2019, which means a record in passenger arrivals. Currently, this air terminal—which had an investment of more than 450 million pesos during this year—is in the Top 10 of nationwide airports with the highest air traffic (40 destinations: 29 international and 11 national).

Regarding the economic impact, our destination is expected to reach 930 million pesos during this month, so it will exceed the 675 million pesos generated in this same month of 2019.

On the other hand, international cruise ships have gradually returned to Puerto Vallarta. Since its resume in August 2021, 80 arrivals have been registered and, if this trend continues, next year is expected to reach the reservations made in 2019.

In November 2021, Puerto Vallarta received four recognitions at the Travvy Awards (also known as the Academy Awards of the Travel Industry):
· Best Honeymoon Destination in Mexico
· Best Culinary Destination in Mexico
· Best Tourism Board in Mexico
· Best Destination in Mexico

In this way, our destination closes this 2021 with excellent results, so there are great expectations to be reach during 2022.

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is very helpful for someone who arrives for the first time to the destination, because through its content one can discover really nice places to visit. Besides, it is a guide for us as residents, because we know from a good source the new things we can do. People take the magazine and in one place they find hotels, restaurants, galleries, real estate and other featured services.”
