Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board brings Second Travel Blogger

October 10 2014

The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board continued its proactive work with bloggers and social media this week with a Twitter party and a second bloggers trip for the year. This time to promote the destination's operational status after Odile.

Participants included writers from About.com , Cancuncanuck , Huffington Post , Man About World , Mexpro.com , Out Traveler , Travalliance , and Travelista TV

The bloggers participated in a general agenda designed to show that the destination's beaches, hotels, meeting spaces and downtown are all active and welcoming to visitors.

The bloggers were hosted by the Casa Velas Hotel and visited Las Caletas, the Rio Cuale crafts market, participated in the sea turtle release program at Marriott CasaMagna Vallarta Adventure's Outdoor Adventure and tasted the many flavors of Puerto Vallarta by dinning at Cafe des Artistes, El Arrayan and the Emiliano Gourmet Cuisine Restaurant. They also experienced the luxury of Casa Velas' Ocean Beach Club and the Marriott CasaMagana Ohtli Spa.

This week the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board also partnered with blogger personality @SassyModernMom in a Twitter party targeting family travel bloggers and consumers. The event made the hashtag #VisitPV the number 2 trending topic in Canada for almost 2 hours and number 9 in Vancouver for the same amount of time. Over 300 contributors participated in the party with 30 million impressions.

As part of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board's U.S. and Canada PR Campaign, managed by LATITUDE, Puerto Vallarta has worked on a number of innovative initiatives with social media and online publications, including work with TBEX, of which it became a member in 2012.
