Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico – Founded 25 years ago in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Velas Vallarta is a luxurious resort that is visited by over two million Americans annually and is well known for being one of the safest places in Mexico.
Despite the violence that is rampant throughout Mexico, Puerto Vallarta enjoys a virtually non-existent crime rate. In 2006, Felipe Calderon, the President of Mexico, began an operation dedicating to fighting police corruption, which resulted in over a thousand officers being discharged.
Although there is still a lot of violence in other regions of Mexico, Puerto Vallarta is unaffected, despite warnings from the U.S. State Department that U.S. Travelers should avoid several states in Mexico, including Jalisco, which is where Puerto Vallarta is situated. The fact of the matter is, Jalisco is a very large state, and labeling an entire state as dangerous due to isolated incidents that occurred in one or two places is simply misleading. Ramon Bernal, the Project Director of Velas Vallarta, stated, “That's like avoiding the entire state of California due to the crime rate in Compton.”
Ramon Bernal's words are confirmed by the fact that Velas Vallarta, throughout its 25 year existence, has been virtually crime-free. Puerto Vallarta boasts a professional police force, which includes a special sub-division tasked with helping tourists. These police officers are distinguishable due to their tan uniforms and safari hats. Not only do they protect travelers, but they are also usually bilingual (speak both Spanish and English) and can assist tourists with various information.
With a combination of beauty and safety, Velas Vallarta is one of the best locations in Mexico to travel. 2012 has just begun, and already, thousands of Americans have come to Velas Vallarta to relax and enjoy its beauty. The beautiful hotel rooms, the incredible restaurants that serve mouth-watering food, the beautiful views of the ocean, and the friendly staff have all contributed to making Velas Vallarta one of the top resorts Puerto Vallarta. “2012 is bound to be an excellent year, and we expect many visitors from the US and around the world, despite what is happening in other regions”, stated Ramon Bernal. And the numbers certainly don't lie: many tourists continue to visit and leave reviews for Velas Vallarta, further confirming it as one of the best luxury resorts in Puerto Vallarta to visit in 2012. “We strive to make sure that the tourists feel welcome and safe at all times, proudly explained Ramon Bernal. Despite what is happening in our country, we want to remind people that Mexico is still one of the most beautiful and exotic destinations for travel”.
