- Stats from January through March of this year indicate increases over last year’s percentages in the number of passengers arriving via air, hotel occupancy, room nights, revenue and online sales.
The Riviera Nayarit’s Renaissance continues and there’s no better proof than the numbers and stats from the first quarter of 2015, where the percentages in different areas surpass those recorded during the same time period in 2014.
The official Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) Poll is the source of the data contained in this release, all of which indicates the destination is on the right path to recovery.
Revenue from January though March of this year reached US$546,238,905, which shows an increase of 19.47% compared to last year’s US$457,211,033.
Hotel occupancy rose by 7.7% compared to the previous period last year, moving up from 75.2% in 2014 to 82.8% in 2015. This year, the percentage of room nights also increased by 10%.
Online sales have been greater thanks to seasonal promotions, campaigns and contests, which directly influenced the 11% growth this year over the same quarter in 2014.
The Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) announced the Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, which serves both the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta, indicated an increase of 13.6% in tourist arrivals via air this quarter compared to that of last year.
