For the monied beach lover

Hello,

For the monied beach lover here is a summary of an article about the Riveria Nayarit from the Sol de Zacatecas (OEM chain) of 27 Nov 2007.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
More than 600 million dollars invested in the Riviera Nayarit. [Note the discrepancy in figures in the following]

During the year 2007 some 3/4 billion dollars [745 million] have been invested in construction in hotel projects on the Riviera Nayarit with an expected increase in tourists of 5% by the end of this year.

More that one million tourists have visited the Riviera Nayarit so far this year and have left over a half million dollars in the local economy. Of that million tourists roughly half have been from the USA and Canada and the other half from Mexico. The foreign tourists spent roughly $1000 usd per person and the Mexican tourists $600 usd per person.

On the Riviera Nayarit there are presently under construction more than 130 hotel projects, an airport, as well as highways and other infrastructure.

The unexpected explosion in tourism has resulted in the re-opening of the Secretary of Tourism for the state of Nayarit. During the Fox administration, that office had been closed.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Another Puerto Vallarta in the making?

Adiós. jerezano

From what I've read in the past, not so much another Vallarta but more of a continued march north of it. My understanding is that, with a lot of FONATUR backing, the development plans start heavy at Punta Mita--already well underway--and just continue further up the coast in several phases. Lots going on there already.

You still have to fly into PV and then go by land up north. That doesn't seem like a good thing for the marketing folks. It's a long drive after a day on a plane. Flying isn't what it used to be and people want to get off the plane and into their hotel room pronto. Of course it will all be developed someday but the timeline perspective is sometimes difficult in Mexico when you are running on US time.

The drive time from the airport to all of the areas under development is less than an hour.

Doesn't that equal about 50 cents per person? Big spenders, aren't they?
