Thus, according to data from the City of Puerto Vallarta, in 2015 it collected nearly $89 million pesos for this tax, while in 2017 it was $131 million.
These revenues are used to promote the port both nationally and internationally, as well as to finance joint campaigns with destinations such as Riviera Nayarit.
