Puerto Vallarta is once again one of the most searched tourist destinations on the internet in Mexico by those interested in traveling this Easter season to beach resorts in the country.
A recent report by the online agency Despegar.com reveals that this tourist destination is among the four most searched in holiday periods such as Easter and the summer period. The report indicates, up to 60 percent of the travelers that book their trips online search for beach destinations in the Mexican Pacific.
According to the study, the remaining 40 percent is from travelers who make phone calls or who run the risk of finding a room already in the place. The travel agency reported that Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit, Cancun-Riviera Maya, Mazatlan and Acapulco are the most visited destinations in the country.
The study indicates that in these four tourist destinations vacationers choose to stay in hotels with an all-inclusive plan, although that does not limit them to go out to have fun and consume in bars, restaurants and businesses of each of the chosen tourist destinations. According to Despegar.com, the search of potential vacationers increased a couple of weeks before this vacation period.
That is why it was expected that after the second half of April, the Internet tickets would increase to find a destination hotel for this Easter season.
”Beach destinations are still the favorite for Mexicans during the next vacation: beaches like Puerto Vallarta and Cancun are still on the list of the most popular, although now there are some emerging destinations, because for four years the colonial cities have increased their demand for these dates, “said the firm’s marketing manager, Gabriel Rosillo.
He explained that the above is due to the economic benefits that these tourist destinations offer tourists, which is seen in the increase in reservations, mainly all-inclusive hotels, a few with an European plan and a number of boutique hotels in the large tourism segment.
The Tourism Secretariat of Jalisco announced that the main tourist destinations will register an average occupation of 90 percent during this Easter season, with Puerto Vallarta at the top, followed by the north and south coast, as well as Guadalajara and Zapopan.
The Ministry of Tourism of Jalisco confirmed these figures by announcing that sustained increases in occupations have been detected during the first week of the holidays, with average occupancy exceeding 85 percent as a result of a series of reservations of the previous 10 days. Thus, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit expect to register a good Easter season, with the arrival of thousands of national vacationers this week.
