Puerto Vallarta open for business following hurricanes


Puerto Vallarta open for business following hurricanes

According to the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board, the destination is 100 per cent operational after recovering from hurricanes Nobert, Odile and Polo, which came close to the destination during the past weeks. All hotels, resorts, tour operations, convention center, airport and golf courses are up-and-running and welcoming visitors. High waves and an increased water level demanded that city officials close the international destination’s beaches for two days, but promptly reopened the beaches on Sept. 7, said the board. All tours and activities are fully functional, including the beach destinations of La Caletas, Yelapa and Majahutas which are located the furthest out in the open ocean.The Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) remained opened during the hurricanes, as well as Puerto Vallarta’s Cruise Port, which started its season a month ahead of schedule with the arrival of the 1,900 passenger Coral Princess on Sept. 29. Meanwhile, the storm-ravaged destination of Los Cabos (located on the Baja California peninsula northwest of Puerto Vallarta) continues to rebuild after Hurricane Odile blasted the region earlier this month. With power still being restored to much of the area, Los Cabos International Airport remains closed to commercial flights until at least Oct. 8, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.
