Upon receiving the recognition on behalf of the mayor at the Friendly Hotel, the director of municipal tourism, Ramón González Lomelí, urged Puerto Vallarta to always be named as the destination ‘Most Mexican beach’ destination, safest in the country and also with the highest number of certified beaches.
“This certification of Playa Holi, is not only a success of the Municipal Government, but of the work of all, of the hoteliers, of service providers, of the community, and of course of us as an administration, that endorses us as one of the municipalities with the highest number of certified beaches,” he said after recalling that just yesterday, on the beach of Mismaloya, the Clean Beach certificate was revalidated.
The flag was awarded by the Mexican Institute for Standardization and Certification, as compliance with the requirements and specifications of the sustainability and quality of beaches established by national standards.
“Certifying a beach is the first step, however the most important thing about certification is to keep it and in this case the Playa Holi has achieved it, which speaks of an undeniable commitment, since a series of very strict requirements must be met, with high quality standards that virtually put us worldwide,” González said.
“In recent years tourism has increased in Puerto Vallarta, the main reason they have is to see the beaches and that is why we have been working to offer tourism spaces with the highest quality of services, as well as cleaning and water quality, “said the deputy director of Municipal Ecology, Albino Garay de la O.
