Mexico displaces Paris and London as North Americans’ favorite

For the first time in history, Mexico becomes the most sought-after international destination for Americans and Canadians to getaway to celebrate Thanksgiving on November 26.

Three are the most sought after places in our country at this time: Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos and Cancun, when in other years the trend was Paris, London and other European capitals, according to the Allianz report.

Recognized as a popular destination, Mexico has been a leader in tourist recovery since Covid 19 broke out, connectivity to this country, and security protocols such as the restriction on occupancy in resorts to promote healthy distance, contribute to much to strengthen the demand for an escape to hot climates.

The Allianz report states that the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 25, will be the one with the highest demand for departures to domestic destinations, and Saturday, November 21 for international destinations, so it is expected a day of continuous arrivals at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport.

Arrivals from the US skyrocket

Despite the pandemic, Puerto Vallarta’s tourism recovery has a clear improvement, since this month of November 710 flights from the United States will arrive, compared to 697 that were had last year, that is, an increase of 1.86 percent.

There are 15 air connections that this month will take off from the United States departing from: Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, San José, San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Denver and Newark.

For its part, there is also very good news from the Canadian market, as a recent Expedia study indicates that Canadians are already planning trips for 2021, and their searches are largely focused on southern beaches, among them is Puerto Vallarta as a warm refuge both for its climate and for the hospitality of its people.

How we publish in In the Expedia list for Canada, Puerto Vallarta is in first place in destinations in the Mexican Pacific, in second position in the general ranking, just after the Riviera Maya, and in first place Cancun; Other destinations on the list are Hawaii and Orlando in the United States.
