The works of the new passenger terminal in the port area and the redevelopment of the airport are necessary improvements due to the constant growth of tourism recording in the city and the basic infrastructure services that must be in place as a gateway to thousands of visitors.

The Director of the Tourism, Agustín Álvarez Valdivia, considered that it is outstanding that entrepreneurs are interested in improving both air and maritime accesses of Puerto Vallarta, as a sign of confidence that tourist activity is solid and will continue to grow.

He pointed out that with an investment of eight million dollars the renovation project was launched in the Customs area and the area of Immigration of this city's international airport.

This renovation seeks to make the first contact of the foreign visitors to the destination easier and with greater facility.

The executive explained that refurbishment works began at the end of the season and is expected to conclude before the start of the next vacation period.

"Fortunately the authorities have corresponded to allocate a greater number of elements to Immigration services because of the increase in aircraft seats and scheduling so visitors won't experience the previous bottlenecks in the future," he explained.

Agustín Álvarez mentioned that more are visitors are coming to this destination and proof of this is that from January to March of this year an increase of 20 percent was reported in domestic passengers and 10 percent in international.

He added that hotel occupancy, which in the first quarter of 2016 was 82.6 percent of the rooms booked, is another indicator of the increase in Puerto Vallarta tourism. Puerto Vallarta estimated occupancy was above 80 percent with some weekends of up to 100 percent for the summer holidays.

Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust Director stressed that new air routes continue to be explored.

"We are still looking for a route connecting with South America which has been a little difficult, but we are still betting on the South American market and not 'having all eggs in one basket' as our natural market is American and Canadian," he concluded.

On the horizon, Puerto Vallarta is expecting a very promising summer, due to the constant promotion made by Fidetur in markets such as Mexico City, among others.

Also, highlighted public and private projects include the upcoming Cirque du Soleil development, the new La Isla shopping center, a new maritime terminal that includes an aquarium, as well as the "short route" from Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara that will significantly reduce the travel time from the capital of Jalisco to this beach destination.
