The International Convention Center will bet on concerts
The International Convention Center of Puerto Vallarta’s general director, Mario Barriga, noted that they are looking to accommodate other events aside from conventions, congresses, and assemblies. He added that the performance of massive concerts at the venue for the regional public is an option on which they will bet.
We had this experience with 3,400–3,500 people, and Maria José was there. In addition to the congresses, we want to have assemblies. We want to provide a venue where the people of Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding area can go to a concert without having to travel to Guadalajara, Tepic, or another location.
The presentation for Gloria Trevi has already been announced for May 13th. In the summer there will be another concert that will be more of a family concert with mariachi.

Plan for clean beaches in Los Cabos for Easter Week set up
Manuel Cortés Avila, the delegate coordinator for the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone in Cabo San Lucas, spoke about his concern for the presence of aquamalas on Los Cabos’ beaches and the recent increase in garbage collection brought on by the increased number of tourists, particularly on El Corsario beach.
A work plan has already been set up to ensure the cleanliness of the beaches and the safety of visitors, Cortés also noted as Easter Week draws near. Because of the anticipated high volume of tourists during this time, the beaches will be kept in good condition.
He clarified, however, that the color of the flags is determined by the weather. During the day, the weather can quickly change, so the flag color might too.
