Vallarta Visitor Traffic

Although there seemed to be a lot of people in Vallarta during March, the numbers were down compared to last year. Total airport  terminal passengers decreased 20.4% compared to the previous year; international passenger traffic decreased 16.2%, and domestic passenger traffic decreased 23.1% compared to March 2008.

However, Easter break took place in March last year, (instead of April like this year), so that could explain the big drop in visitors by air. Reports from hotels and local businesses actually say there are more people but they have less money to spend. 

One thing for sure is that they are not buying much real estate, sales are still very slow, especially for developers. Its going to be an interesting summer…
