The Interior Ministry of Mexico intends on turning Nuevo Vallarta into an entertainment and casino driven resort.
Marcela González Salas, CEO of Gaming, said that casinos are the natural progression for the area with the arrival of Cirque du soleil in 2018.
“The area should be a casino resort itself, where there are entertainment centers, sport complexes, first class hotels, and convention centers,” she said.
Gonzalez made the statements as she was leaving her position with the Interior Ministry for a political candidate run. She indicated the same plans were in place for Puerto Peñasco as well as Nuevo Vallarta.
According to her, these plans for the area will not be affected by her departure from the ministry, the deputy general, Marcos García Hernández, will continue the vision for the area.
