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.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”
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.”
