Mexican ports, including the API (Administración Portuaria Integral, in Spanish), are ready to receive cruise ships with visitors again, as long as the protocols and regulations established by the health authorities are complied with.

This was stated by Fernando Bustamante Igartúa, general director of Puertos, during the videoconference “El Regreso de Turismo de Cruceros en México” (“The Return of Cruise Tourism in Mexico”), where he said that in the first half of 2020, 863 cruise ships arrived in Mexico with almost 2.3 million passengers.

Likewise, he stressed that, as a regulation to safeguard human rights, during the confinement was implemented the Humanitarian Bridges program at national level, in which 2,383 crew and passengers were safely repatriated.

Among other participants, the videoconference was attended by Jennifer Marmanillo, director of Itinerary Planning for Norwegian Cruise Line; Carlos Estrada, director of Commercial Operations for Carnival Corporation and Sean Treacy, senior vice president of International Sales for Royal Caribbean International.

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”
Leonardo Uribe
General manager

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
