In preparation for the arrival of the North American Travel Journalists Association, the city of Puerto Vallarta and the tourism board will begin a deep-cleaning schedule of the Malecón and Los Muertos Pier from April 29 till May 5.
The cleaning area will be between Hotel Rosita and through the Malecón, the Navel Museum, and southward to Los Muertos Pier. The cleaning process will include pressure washing of the sidewalks and boardwalk, cleaning of statues, planters, and lighting.
The cleaning will be done by a professional team contracted by the city through an open bidding process and the contract was awarded to the company that met all state requirements, including transparency laws.
The city said the work will be performed in a way to cause as little impact to the flow of traffic and commerce by locals and tourists in the area.
The North American Travel Journalists Association will be visiting the city May 4 – 9. The group is the largest association of travel writers and bloggers in North America and will represent great media coverage for the city in both North America and worldwide.
