Mexico’s Tourism Board says Puerto Vallarta tourism is saturated

Rodolfo Lopez Negrete, the director for the Tourism Board of Mexico, speaking at the National Tourism Forum, said that Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, Cancun, and Riviera Maya has a saturated tourism industry.

Speaking at the forum the director indicated that the average occupancy rate for hotels was 70% with many weeks at 100% causing businesses to turn away tourists.

Negrete said that to relieve the saturation problem in these popular destinations a better effort to promote Huatulco, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo and Loreto needed to be made by the Mexico Tourism Board.
