Puerto Vallarta must maintain its efforts to continue to be the tourist destination with the highest number of certified beaches nationwide and extend the recognition to other areas, as these badges give greater prominence to the port, said the director of the Hotel Association and Motels (AHyM), Alejandro Torres Magaña.
The hotel executive praised the work that has been done by the municipal government, the private sector and the federal and state governments, for the certification of more beaches and the re-certifications, as well as the Blue Flag awards, which are an example for the destination to remain one of the favorites for national and foreign tourism.
He cited the recent re-certification of the Mismaloya and Holi beaches, which represent another stage for new certifications, with the challenge of maintaining them and getting more Blue Flag awards, which is why he congratulated the municipal government for promoting this joint effort.
“It is a joint effort that we have to take with the private sector, driven by the municipal government; each one to do our part so that these projects, activities and awards are seen positively by tourists and the community,” he said.
He pointed out that Puerto Vallarta is the tourist destination with the most certified beaches nationwide “and we want to continue maintaining that commitment, not so much to continue being leaders, but simply because we have seen the benefit of having these recognitions and working with ecology in this case.”
