September was the most brutal for tourism in Puerto Vallarta in the last five years, according to Francisco Beltrán, president of the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies, who said that with more than 30 years in the tourism industry, “There will be no people who can tell me that this September was good. ”

He said that from his point of view, being fair, last month was fatal for Puerto Vallarta and fell considerably, which he considers is a wake-up call to see what happened as the occupations are based on the effort which is carried out and this low should be analyzed.
“Maybe what happened was that we trusted, if we are responsible, we cannot only say that September was bad and move on, we need to think and analyze what happened, have the responsibility to determine what happened and we have to improve it.”
Fortunately or unfortunately he added, September was very punished, perhaps the most punished in the last five years, but October is a month that began to pick up this week, “it’s coming up and thinking positively, our season is going to start from November. ”
There are many expectations, “Puerto Vallarta is in a very privileged place and we owe that to a very wise promotion that has been leading the people responsible for it, and we owe it to the good image of the destination that is projected”.
He expects that there will be an excellent winter season and a very good start to the year 2019.
He pointed out that now it is not only Puerto Vallarta but also the Riviera Nayarit and therefore, when speaking about one, the two are spoken of as a united destiny, therefore, he indicated, it must be understood that we must work together, promote ourselves together and most importantly, without losing sight of how they are promoted, a tourist destination of simplicity, humility, and service.
So before the high season that looms, you should take care of these aspects so that the tourism that comes feels it and when they leave, they have a desire to return.
