Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit are getting a shot in the arm of positive news and events that they certainly need.
Tianguis 2012 will be held at the Vallarta Convention center, an event that has always been held previously in Acapulco. Tianguis is the annual (and largest) travel fair and market for Mexican tourism. It brings in people from all over the place – nationally and internationally.
This came about because of strong cooperation between Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta to market the destination together as one. This is a great coup for the region, being the first place to hold the Tianguis since they decided to start moving it around the country. And great to see the two tourism offices coming together to make this happen. Hopefully its a sign of more compromise and working together on other projects down the line.
The Pan-American Games will also be taking place in the region, at least the water events such as sailing. This takes place this fall, primarily in Nuevo Vallarta. Good coverage should come out of this.
And the Miss Mexico pageant will be held in the region this September – that certainly should bring good coverage!
Very positive news regarding tourism for the region.
