According to the most recent Global Traveler’s survey, Puerto Vallarta has been chosen as the Best Leisure Destination in Mexico.

This recognition, announced by the Jalisco Ministry of Tourism, reflects that our destination continues in the preference of travelers and is a vote of confidence in the traditional attractions that converge in the Banderas Bay.

Global Traveler is a specialized travel website, which is made up of experts in the tourism sector and aims to connect with frequent international travelers residing in the United States.

Luis Villaseñor, director of promotion and public relations of the Public Trust for the Promotion and Tourist Advertising of Puerto Vallarta, said that this recognition comes at an extraordinary moment for this destination, just when the tourism industry is gradually reactivating with due hygiene measures.

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others. And, because the way your magazines are located, we can really capture the clients we want."

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“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.”
