According to Ludwig Estrada, director of Tourism and Economic Development of the municipality, Puerto Vallarta registers an excellent summer vacation period, with the arrival of thousands of visitors both by air and by road, as well as very high occupancy levels.

Estrada indicated that there are great expectations for these holidays, the highest since 2019, when records were reached in air operations and this year they are being exceeded, since only in July there were a total of 2,119 commercial flights.

In addition, the director of Tourism and Economic Development of the municipality, explained that hotel occupancy has remained at levels close to 80 percent and on weekends with several full establishments (not including hosting platforms that rent houses or apartments, and those who visit friends or family, all of which will leave a very important economic impact).

Finally, Estrada stressed that according to the information published by the Federal Commission for the Protecting against Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS), the ten beaches monitored in this destination, including those of neighboring Cabo Corrientes, are in suitable conditions for recreational use.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising our business in Vallarta Lifestyles is the presence of our brand aimed to the audience we are looking for. It is a reliable and professional magazine that has helped us with the marketing of our restaurant several times, through well done photography or articles. We feel that we understand each other.”

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“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."
