What you should know when traveling to Puerto Vallarta during 2021?

After a year 2020 with a lot of uncertainty for those who love to travel to Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, in the first quarter of 2021, fortunately, it seems that circumstances are beginning to have an encouraging future for the tourism industry. 

The application of millions of vaccinations in the United States and the effectiveness of the application of security measures at the Puerto Vallarta airport have encouraged the increase of tourist activity for this region. However, we must not let our guard down, and you should take into account what we tell you below if you are planning to travel to Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit.

Beaches in Nayarit and Jalisco will be open to tourism during 2021

While during some months of 2020 the beaches of Nayarit and Jalisco were closed due to the security protocol of both state governments, at the beginning of 2021, they announced that the beaches will be open all year round. There will be exceptions on specific dates during the Easter and summer vacations, but if you credit your reservation at any of the hotels in the area, the beaches concessioned to these hotels, you will be able to access them during this time.

Currently, the epidemiological Semaphore of Nayarit and Jalisco is in green color and the arrival of vaccines for the vulnerable population sector, it seems that this will continue for the rest of the year, but security measures will continue indefinitely, to ensure the safety of visitors to the Bahia de Banderas region.

Therefore, it is important to emphasize the importance of making reservations at the hotel of your choice. One of the safety measures for the tourism sector is to limit the capacity of hotels to avoid overcrowding in their facilities. In Jalisco, hotels can operate up to 66% of their capacity and in Nayarit up to 50% of the available rooms.

For the work carried out jointly with the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta hotel family, as well as the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) awarded both states the Safe Travel Seal. This seal only distinguishes tourist destinations that comply with health and safety protocols endorsed by international health organizations.
