The Mexico Institute of Normalization and Certification A.C. is set to issue two more beach certifications in Puerto Vallarta with the addition of Mismaloya Beach and the Holiday Inn Beach.
The two beaches will join Garza Blanca, Palmares, Camarones y Ampas-Conchas Chinas, certified in 2013, bringing the area total to six federal certifications for Puerto Vallarta.
The federal certifications are in addition to the international certification known as ‘Blue Flag’ which was recently awarded to Palmares Beach.
The government is currently petitioning the Blue Flag commission for their certification of Mismaloya Beach and the Holiday Inn Beach as well.
Certifications are scored on environmental issues, quality of water, and preservation of the beaches.
