According to recent statistics released by the National Public Urban Security Survey (ENSU by its Spanish initials) and Puerto Vallarta’s Municipal Tourism Directorate, Puerto Vallarta is one of the safest places to be in Mexico.

The role of the National Public Urban Security Survey is to record public perceptions of safety, tracking opinions each quarter, while the Municipal Tourism Directorate is responsible for all elements related to tourism, including tourist safety. The most recent results published in March 2017 and over the Easter vacations this past April were that residents and tourists in Puerto Vallarta felt the safest when compared to other parts of the country.

What does ENSU track?

The kinds of questions that the National Public Urban Security Survey covers includes whether people feel anxious about their safety in their city and more specifically whether they felt safe at ATMs, on public transport, at the bank and on the streets going about their daily routines. Puerto Vallarta came out on top as one of the safest places to live in Mexico.

Municipal Tourism Directorate’s Survey

Staff working for the Municipal Tourism Directorate carried out surveys with more than 2000 tourists in various locations throughout the city to get a general consensus about how tourists felt about their safety while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta. The survey targeted tourists who were nearing the end of their vacations to obtain a more objective opinion.

What was the verdict?

According to surveys conducted by the Municipal Tourism Directorate during the Easter holiday, tourists in Puerto Vallarta reported feeling very safe, claiming that the city is a friendly tourist destination. More than 90 percent of the people questioned responded that they found Puerto Vallarta to be very safe and friendly, making particular reference to the number of tourist police that were visible.
