These accolades, known as the “Academy Awards” of the U.S. travel industry, celebrate excellence in the global tourism sector, recognizing outstanding achievements. These accolades include Best Destination in Mexico, Best Honeymoon Destination in Mexico, Best Culinary Destination in Mexico, Best Wedding Destination in Mexico, and Best Tourism Office in Mexico.
This achievement is a testament to Puerto Vallarta’s international allure, which has earned a special place in the hearts of travelers. The diversity of its natural settings, its rich gastronomy, and its ability to host special events distinguish it as an exceptional tourist destination.
In a ceremony held at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Luis Villaseñor, CEO of the Public Trust for the Promotion and Advertising of Tourism in Puerto Vallarta, expressed his gratitude for representing Puerto Vallarta at these influential tourism industry awards. Success in multiple categories underscores Puerto Vallarta’s importance and prominence in international markets.
The Travvy Awards recognize the top travel destinations and providers, including hotels, car rental companies, cruise lines, airlines, and wholesalers, chosen by those who know the industry best: travel agents.
Puerto Vallarta solidifies its position as one of the leading sun and beach destinations in Mexico, remaining in the forefront of travelers’ minds, especially among the North American market. An example of its growing popularity is its recent inclusion in the top 10 recommended destinations for Thanksgiving celebrations in 2023 by Allianz Partners, a travel insurance specialist, where it ranked third in terms of tickets purchased for this holiday.
It’s worth noting that as of September, Puerto Vallarta has welcomed 2,863,800 international passengers by air, representing a 10.7% growth compared to the same period the previous year. These figures project outstanding results for the final months of 2023, further solidifying Puerto Vallarta’s position as a renowned international tourist destination.
