There were 37 candidates worldwide and several contests were developed. In the first round, Puerto Vallarta faced Boston. Quickly our destination outstripped its Massachusetts rival, as soon as the competition started, users responded on Facebook and Twitter revealing how much they enjoy traveling to the great beaches of Puerto Vallarta.
The next round became even more interesting, now it was the turn of measuring to another beautiful tropical destination: Montego Bay. The turquoise waters of the Caribbean and the iconic Jamaican reggae atmosphere were not enough to beat Puerto Vallarta with its unrivaled range of activities and natural beauties.
Another two destinations in the Caribbean faced off to compete against Puerto Vallarta: Punta Cana and the Bahamas, however, the charm of the Banderas Bay could exceed the number of votes of both rivals, thus passing to the semifinal.
Now the competitor to defeat was an incredible destination that many Mexicans and foreigners know well: Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo it was here that the dispute over the pass to the final became fiercer, by the voting end, both destinations were very evenly matched, however, Puerto Vallarta turned out to be the winner.
After several rounds of victories, our hometown faced Mazatlan, Pacific neighbor, the competition was quite even and Puerto Vallarta managed to position itself in second place. This award was added to those previously obtained, such as the “World’s Friendliest City”, “The Most Romantic Place in Mexico” and one of the “Best Cities” by Travel and Leisure.
