According to recent statistics, this June, the number of commercial flight passengers arriving at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport increased by 36.3 percent over June 2019 and May numbers were up 35% over May 2019. These numbers not only highlight that tourism rates are now exceeding pre-pandemic levels but that travelers are excited to visit Puerto Vallarta during the summer season.
The summer months in Puerto Vallarta have always been an extremely busy time for domestic tourism, with Mexicans escaping the heat of urban centers like Guadalajara and Mexico City to enjoy the breezy beaches of our destination. However, for international tourists, the summer was once considered “low season”, but in the past two years, it appears that low season is becoming a thing of the past.
There are several reasons for this change. Many people are eager to “make up time” for missed vacations spent while travel wasn’t possible and are happy to visit the destinations they’ve been dreaming about at any time of the year. Secondly, with the rise of remote work, many are able to take “workcations” and stay one or even two months at a time, so the lower summer rates for accommodations are very attractive.
For those that own a vacation rental property in Puerto Vallarta, this is excellent news. Not only are those with investment properties in Vallarta more likely to see their rental calendars filling with more booked nights per year, but many of those stays will be longer term, meaning less administrative work required to keep your property rented.
