Authorities say the upcoming Semana Santa holiday (Easter Holidays) will be a record breaker for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
“I dare say we’ll be about 100 percent, because we have 22 thousand hotel rooms in Puerto Vallarta. When we say that we are at 100% that is a tourist population of 66,000, however there are condos and other Puerto Vallarta real estate that serve as vacation rentals and are not included in our estimates. We believe we will have over 80,000 tourists in the city on any given day” said Carlos Gerard, head of Municipal Tourism.
“This 2014 spring break season is expected to be excellent, although the first few days will only be at 90 percent and will increase for the weekends.”
For the two weeks of vacation, Puerto Vallarta expects about 140 thousand tourists mainly from Guadalajara, Monterrey, El Bajio and Mexico City.
Municipal Tourism installed six information booths on the Malecon, Bus Stations and most popular beaches for support. There will also be support by Tourist Police and Civil Protection.
