“This past long weekend, hotels, specially the three stars one, were a little more than 90 % full to capacity. We were visited by 150 thousand tourists. It is important to point out that the quality of service we provide, as well as the kindness of our people is what motivate tourist to return to our city”, expressed Perez.

Perez also added that, three cruisers are expected to arrive this week, bringing a total of seven thousand five hundred passengers.
According to information provided by Port Authorities Each passenger spends about US $ 90.00; therefore, Puerto Vallarta is expecting to make a profit of US $ 675,000.00 a day.

Abducted students' families call for boycott as a clown, a footballer and a reality TV star stand in upcoming polls

With a football legend, a famous clown, a former Big Brothercontestant and several soap stars in the running, the list of candidates in Mexico’s forthcoming elections reads more like the line-up of a television panel show. But the emergence of these maverick contenders reflects a growing sense of disillusionment, which has been compounded by a high-profile movement to boycott the elections.

Enrique Peña Nieto, who has the lowest approval rating of any president in the past two decades, still has three years left in office, but there are more than 1,200 positions at stake in the mayoral and congressional contests to be decided on 7 June.

This is the first time independent candidates have been allowed to participate in Mexico, an unwelcome development for the three major parties that have been tarred by years of bloodshed. An estimated 100,000 people have been killed since 2006 and at least 23,000 have disappeared, including 43 students who were infamously abducted in southern Mexico last September.

The government says the students were massacred by a drug gang, but their parents continue to search tirelessly for them. They are calling for a nationwide boycott of the elections, arguing that a vote for any politician is a vote for corruption and impunity.

“Our position is that there won’t be any elections until our boys reappear,” Mario Cesar Gonzalez, whose son Cesar Manuel is among the missing, told The Independent on Sunday. “We’ve been a waiting a long time but the government is just toying with us. If they don’t respond to our requests then we’re willing to do what it takes to stop the elections.”

Elsewhere in Mexico, celebrities are offering an alternative at the polls. Patricio Zambrano, a TV presenter and former contestant on the Mexican version of Big Brother, is running for mayor of Monterrey, Mexico’s business capital.

“I’m a public servant, not a politician,” he said. “Today’s politicians are robbing our children’s futures. They’re racking up the biggest debts in history in Monterrey.... There are two million people living in poverty here in Nuevo Leon, which is the second richest state in the country.”

PUERTO VALLARTA: Mexico's Congress approved a legal reform on Thursday that will allow foreign immigration and customs agents to bear arms while in the country, an issue that has been a source of tension with the United States.

Security personnel for high-level foreign officials will also be permitted to carry arms during visits to Mexico.

An unarmed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent was killed in 2011, after his car was ambushed by drug gang members in central Mexico.

The reform still needs to be signed into law by President Enrique Pena Nieto.
