Mexico breathes sigh of relief in wake of Hurricane Patricia

Meetings and event suppliers on Mexico’s Pacific coast are reporting business as usual in the aftermath Hurricane Patricia, the strongest hurricane ever measured in the Western Hemisphere.

Puerto Vallarta is fully operational with 100% of its hotel and restaurant facilities open, as well as its International Airport (PVR), marina, cruise port and Convention Center. All domestic and international airlines as well as buses, taxis and other ground transport companies have resumed their normal service schedule.

All visitors who were transferred to shelters and hotels outside of Puerto Vallarta as a precaution measure have been returned to Puerto Vallarta.

Southwest Airlines scheduled two recovery flights from PVR to Houston (HOU) and Phoenix (PHX) to help with getting people home.

No changes to the cruise schedule have been made. Disney’s Wonder cruise ship, carrying 2,400 passengers, will arrive in Puerto Vallarta as scheduled on Monday October 26, 2015; and Norwegian’s Jewel and the Ruby Princess will make their scheduled call on Wednesday October 28, 2015 as planned.

No human loss or infrastructure damages have been reported as a result of Hurricane Patricia.
