Puerto Vallarta is currently enjoying an exceptional summer vacation season, surpassing expectations with weekday occupancy averages reaching nearly 80 percent and weekends witnessing over 90 percent occupancy rates.

The ongoing vacation period’s statistics have proven immensely favorable. Weekday occupancy averages have consistently ranged between 76.60 and 80.50 percent, while the past two weekends have surged to an impressive 95 percent occupancy rate.

Furthermore, there’s reason to celebrate the positive outcome in terms of visitors arriving via land transportation. According to data provided by the Central de Autobuses, last year’s vacation season saw 49,626 visitors making their way to the destination, a number that is anticipated to swell to approximately 55,000 visitors this year.

In addition, the month of August will see the ASIPONA welcoming eight international cruise ships, a factor that will further invigorate Puerto Vallarta’s bustling tourism landscape during this vacation period.

Puerto Vallarta’s allure remains unparalleled, beckoning travelers with its stunning beaches, rich cultural experiences, and vibrant local scene. The region’s thriving culinary scene, picturesque landscapes, and warm hospitality continue to be powerful magnets for vacationers seeking an unforgettable getaway.

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”

“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.”

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”
