“We’re seeing that slowly but surely, more and more people are considering taking flights, and economies and markets are starting to open. Though the number of air routes has significantly decreased when compared to 2019, several of the more important routes are still in place, and that makes us very optimistic for the upcoming winter season,” said Marc Murphy, managing director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau.


Canada is the second most important foreign market for Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit, just after the United States. Every year, thousands of Canadians travel to this region to escape the intense winter cold. Here they find an enviable climate, magnificent beaches, safety, and, of course, an exceptional hotel offer.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) work together to promote the region with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit through its Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur).
