Spring arrived in the northern hemisphere on March 21st, but temperatures remain very low in the northern part of the continent, especially in Canada, which is why thousands of winter tourists from that country have extended their stay in Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay for at least a few more weeks.

French-speaking Canadians from the province of Quebec will continue to rent houses, apartments and rooms in different areas of this region, according to landlords who have been consulted on the matter and who have informed that the Canadians argue that it is still “very cold” in their cities of origin, for which reason they have decided to stay between ten and fifteen more days, that is, until mid-April.

For the first time ever, gray whales are being spotted off the coast of La Paz this late in the season. This is leading to an extension of the popular tourist season.

According to the gray whale count off the coast of La Paz, more than 100 of the gentle giants remain off the coast leading to an unprecedented extension of the tourism season.

In the past, many of the gray whales started migrating well before the end of March to find different feeding grounds. Due to the current weather and ocean conditions, more are remaining off the coast, and the tour season will be extended into April.
