Cancellations of ‘spring breakers’ in Puerto Vallarta leaves huge financial losses

The wave of violence in Jalisco and comments by Donald Trump against Mexico are some of the reasons why the ‘spring breakers’ canceled their reservations in Puerto Vallarta, which implies losses close to $400 million pesos in economic output.

The vice president of the National Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Services, (Canaco Servytur) in Puerto Vallarta, Martin Rodriguez Felix, says that it is a range of between 10,000 and 13,000 cancellations by American students, planned in the holiday period before Easter.

Puerto Vallarta is within the lists of 10 cities with less perception of insecurity in the country, according to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi)

Travel alerts issued by the US Treasury Department, and the recent irregularities, such as the problems of public transport with operations against Uber, robbery of tourists, and abuses of tour operators, affected cancellations.

The so-called ‘spring break’ is the vacation period that students in the United States and Canada have during the spring, and a large part of them travel to Mexican beaches to have fun, and their average spending is around $30,000 pesos per person.
