Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is a extremely safe destination and many Americans are still traveling there! Surprised to hear that? Well, in spite of the perception many have based on recent years’ media coverage, a recent security assessment that was commissioned by the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board and conducted by the San Diego, CA firm Thomas Dale & Associates (TDA) concluded “…that Puerto Vallarta is one of the safest tourist destinations for international and national tourists.” According to Apple Vacations, Thomas Dale & Associates is a leading global investigative and security firm who lists several Fortune 100 companies amongst its clients. The study was based on observation, primary interviews, and data analysis of events and found that not only is there very little crime in Puerto Vallarta, especially little affecting tourists and ex-pats living there, that people on the ground in Puerto Vallarta said they felt safe and are planning to and/or would visit again. So if you are looking for a great value on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, consider the lovely Puerto Vallarta!
NEWS FLASH*** Hilton Cancun to become an Iberostar resort! ***NEWS FLASH
Iberostar Hotels & Resorts acquired the Hilton Cancun for an undisclosed amount and will rename it the Iberostar Cancun. Iberostar said when combining the purchase price and the cost of renovations, the hotel is a $100 million investment. The hotel will be Iberostar’s ninth property in Mexico (five at Playa Paraiso in the Riviera Maya; two near Playa del Carmen, also in Riviera Maya; and one in Cozumel).
Hilton will continue operating the 426-room hotel until it closes for renovations in August. It will reopen as an all-inclusive Iberostar resort on Dec. 1. “Mexico is our priority market, and this acquisition complements our brand’s offerings there,” said Miguel Fluxa, president of the Iberostar Group.
Renovations include refurbishing the main lobbies and lobby bar, building new pool terraces and adding a buffet restaurant and four specialty restaurants. Future plans call for the construction of a stage/amphitheater, a water park and a club for teens
