The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board has reported that the destination is 100 percent operational after recovering from hurricanes Nobert, Odile and Polo which came close to the destination during the past weeks. All hotels, resorts, tour operations, convention center, airport and golf courses are up-and-running and welcoming visitors.
The city of Puerto Vallarta is surrounded by the Bay of Banderas, one of the largest in Mexico, providing a natural barrier for the destination. Nevertheless, high waves and an increase water level demanded that city officials close the international destination’s beaches for two days but promptly reopened the beaches on Sept. 7.
All tours and activities are fully functional, including the beach destinations of La Caletas, Yelapa and Majahutas which are located the furthest out in the open ocean.
The Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) remained opened during the hurricanes as well as Puerto Vallarta’s Cruise Port which started its season a month ahead of schedule with the arrival of the 1,900 passenger Coral Princess on Sept. 29.
Puerto Vallarta’s 22,000 rooms, including hotels, boutique properties and resorts are all open and offering last minute deals for the Fall and Winter months, as well as special travel offers on the destination’s website: www.visitpuertovallarta.com.
