RE: Riviera Nayarit Spared by Hurricane Patricia. All Hotels, Airports and Roads Operating Normally
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau is relieved to announce that while all preparations to ensure the safety of residents and visitors were made in advance of the expected impact of Hurricane Patricia on Friday, October 23, Hurricane Patricia’s impact dissipated before reaching our region and as a result, there was minimum damage to homes, no damage to roads or bridges and no lives were lost/no one was hurt. Our hotels were built in recent years and constructed to withstand storms with reinforced walls and generators and therefore none of our coastal hotels sustained damages or loss of power.
On October 24, the airports in Puerto Vallarta and Tepic that serve Riviera Nayarit opened early morning, all of our residents and visitors returned to their homes and hotels, and all of our roads are open along the coastline and main highways including those through the mountains to Tepic & Guadalajara. Seaports are operating for all maritime activities. Beaches have also been reopened. All facilities and services are again functioning normally.
“We wish to thank all three of the federal, state and municipal governments, Nayarit residents and our visitors to Nayarit for responding so quickly in advance of the storm to assure that everyone stayed safe in case the storm had its potential impact,” said Marc Murphy, General Director, Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Center.
