The low demand in hospitals and the decrease in positive cases for Covid-19, have helped the tourist reactivation in Puerto Vallarta and throughout the state to continue with firm steps. Likewise, the good progress in vaccination, currently for people between 40 and 49 years old, and inoculated between 50 and 59 years old, older adults, medical personnel and teachers, generates confidence to have a very promising summer season.
The management of sanitary protocols will continue to be applied strictly, this being the basis to safeguard the health of all visitors, Vallartans and the tourist industry of Puerto Vallarta, to continue offering the best experiences in one of the most important destinations at the national level and international.
