Mexico, with its vibrant culture, delectable cuisine, and stunning beaches, has long been a go-to vacation destination. However, concerns about safety often cloud the decision-making process for potential travelers. Let’s set the record straight: Mexico is generally a safe place to visit, provided you choose your destination wisely. And guess what? Puerto Vallarta emerges as a shining star in the constellation of safety.

While crime can exist in any country, it is not a universal phenomenon. The key is knowing where to go. Puerto Vallarta, nestled on the Pacific Coast, has earned its stripes as one of the safest cities in Mexico. The city’s commitment to ensuring a secure environment for residents and visitors alike sets it apart.

One of the jewels in Puerto Vallarta’s safety crown is its police force. Friendly officers are strategically stationed throughout the city, ready to assist visitors and guarantee their safety. Whether you need directions to attractions or just a friendly face, these officers are there for you. The emphasis on visitor safety is particularly evident in neighborhoods like El Centro, Marina Vallarta, and Romantic Zone, each boasting a commendable safety record.

For the discerning traveler seeking not only beauty but also safety, Puerto Vallarta is a top choice. Its inclusion in the Top 10 Safest Cities in Mexico is a testament to its commitment to providing a worry-free tropical getaway.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

“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.”
