Visitors prefer Puerto Vallarta’s authenticity

According to travel agent Amaury Gómez, a representative of the agency El Corté Inglés, Puerto Vallarta benefits the most from being an authentic location rather than a replica of other beach resorts when competing for tourists with other domestic and international options.

In his own words:

“Puerto Vallarta is an authentic, safe, and diverse destination, where a wide variety of hotel options and tourist attractions can be enjoyed, giving it great competitive advantages.”

“Tourism is a strategic activity for this region, and the friendliness toward visitors is, along with the authenticity of this land, what tourists most appreciate. They must maintain and reinforce it to continue being leaders in this area.”

At least 20 new lifeguards are expected to protect tourists this spring, according to local authorities in Los Cabos.

These 20 new recruits have completed all the required training to become certified as lifeguards and protect beachgoers in Cabo. Through the entire spring vacation season, Los Cabos is anticipating at least 50,000 visitors.

It was crucial for the authorities to integrate these new recruits because peak season is quickly approaching.

With these 20 new hires, they now have at least one more lifeguard to add to the rotation on nearly all 22 of the beaches in Los Cabos that they are responsible for. Local authorities are aware that this department is understaffed at many of the popular Cabo beaches.
