Puerto Vallarta is a relatively small town, which makes it a perfect destination with its beaches, markets, and streets filled with vibrant art and culture. Because of this, and because tourism is arguably the main economic activity in Puerto, local authorities take matters into their own hands, ensuring the safety of visitors; thus, making Puerto Vallarta one of the safest destinations in Mexico with resorts such as Garza Blanca, the safest resort in Puerto Vallarta, which takes special precautions with its safety guidelines.

So, is Puerto Vallarta Safe for Tourists?

Over 6 million people travel to Mexico’s tourist destinations yearly, and most do so without issues. After all, tourism is one of the most important economic activities in Mexico.

The U.S. Department of State keeps updated travel information on different destinations worldwide, including the 32 Mexican states, and issues travel warnings accordingly. Jalisco, where Puerto Vallarta is located, shows a small travel warning in certain places. Still, there are no bans or restrictions, especially in the Riviera Nayarit area, which includes Puerto Vallarta.

So, Puerto Vallarta is safe for tourists, and you are always welcome to visit, especially in a resort such as Garza Blanca, the safest resort in Puerto Vallarta.
