The relation is the result of a statistical processing of the so-called Economic Census 2019, that is, the Tourism Satellite Account, among other measuring instruments of the organisms Inegi, Coneval, Sedatu, Conapo and Pnud.

 Puerto Vallarta, located in the fifth place on the list, stands out for leading the recovery of the country's tourist destinations, according to indicators such as the increase in the number of flights, hotel occupancy, the reopening of tourist services, the consolidation of family and leisure segments, among others, and above all the implementation of biosecurity measures, which generate trust in travelers.

 With a hotel offer of more than 200 hotel establishments of all categories, more than 22 thousand hotel rooms, a wide gastronomic offer, and more than a hundred tourist activities to be carried out in the open air. Puerto Vallarta leads the attraction of visitors to the Mexican Pacific, an offer permanently spread by the Fideicomiso de Promoción y Publicidad Turística de Puerto Vallarta.
