Puerto Vallarta shielded by Nature: Hurricane Patricia

Hurricane Patricia was recorded as the most powerful hurricane in the history of the planet, but once again, Puerto Vallarta escaped unscathed before it made landfall. According to Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism, Enrique de la Madrid Cordero, we were “extremely lucky.”

Points south, as well as inland, were not so fortunate, as the path of the hurricane left behind its share of devastation throughout Mexico, primarily north of the Pacific’s most important Mexican port of Manzanillo and south of Puerto Vallarta.

In Puerto Vallarta, the combined effort by government, private institutions and individuals were evident, with a common goal: guaranteeing everyone’s safety. Many hotel guests were evacuated, especially from the beachfront hotels, but those hotels situated on hills took great care of their guests, sheltering them in meeting rooms with plenty of food, water and even cocktails. After the scare was over, all tourists returned to their hotels and enjoyed the beautiful clear skies and sunshine.

“Puerto Vallarta is fully operational with 100% of it’s hotel and restaurants open, as well as it’s International Airport (PVR), , marina and cruise ship terminal. All domestic and international airlines as well as buses, taxis and other ground transport companies have resumed their normal service schedule.”

No changes to the cruise schedule were made at all. Disney’s Wonder cruise ship, carrying 2,400 passengers, arrived in Puerto Vallarta as scheduled on Monday October 26th, 2015; and Norwegian’s Jewel and the Ruby Princess made their scheduled call on Wednesday October 28th, 2015 as planned.

No human loss or infrastructure damage was reported as a result of Hurricane Patricia.

According to experts, the mountainous terrain of the Sierra Madres, in conjunction with Puerto Vallarta having the second largest bay in North America, helped tremendously as Patricia crashed into the mountains and salvaged our lovely city.

This once again goes to prove that Puerto Vallarta is a safe place to vacation and/or invest in real estate.
