Puerto Vallarta Tourism Arrivals Up Eight Percent

Puerto Vallarta is on the up and up. According to Mexico's Ministry of Tourism, Puerto Vallarta had more than 1 million hotel room occupancies in the months from January to May 2013. This is 11,000 more than the same period in 2012. The months of June and July have had an average occupancy rate of 1.8 above last year. 

The government also reports that almost 800,000 tourists arrived during the first half of 2013, which is an 8 percent increase compared to 2012 figures. 

Puerto Vallarta is becoming more accessible for travelers as improvements continue to be made to the destination's access points and infrastructure. In addition, Delta Air Lines began servicing nine daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles to Puerto Vallarta in June. In May 2014, Delta will offer two weekly flights from Great Britain during the summer season. New flights will also start with Aeromexico from New York's JFK as well as from other cities like Philadelphia and St. Louis.
