Puerto Vallarta Sets Foreign Visitors Arrivals Record

Undoubtedly, Puerto Vallarta has been getting a lot of attention from international visitors—especially Americans—this 2022. Our destination has recently been breaking records in passenger arrivals.

Miguel Torruco, secretary of Tourism in Mexico, shared the most recent data for hotel occupancy in the country: “For week 37 of 2022 (September 12th to 18th), the three tourist destinations with the highest occupancy level are Cancún (72.4 percent), Los Cabos (59.9 percent) and Puerto Vallarta (57.3 percent).”

During the summer, these destinations have been the top destinations. A few months ago, Puerto Vallarta was in second place with 71.2 percent of hotel occupancy (surpassing by far the country’s average—57.8 percent—and breaking records for the past few years).

The popularity of Puerto Vallarta keeps growing. In July 2022, the airport hit a record and received 140,150 passengers—30 percent more than the previous year and 37 percent more than 2019—and the main visitors are from United States and Canada.

Luis Villaseñor, director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board, shared that Americans just love the city: “The United States accounts for more than three-quarters of international visitors, and just over one-quarter come from California. Los Angeles is the city that carries the most passengers, followed by San Francisco and then Chicago.”

Currently, Puerto Vallarta is home to around 30,000 Americans and Canadians.

“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.”

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”
