Since the official announcement of the host of the Tianguis Turistico 2012, or Tourism Fair, in July 2011, the states of Jalisco and Nayarit began preparations to welcome this highly anticipated event. With 70% of the planning and logistics complete, Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit are well on their way to guaranteeing the success of the Tianguis: from urban renovations and transportation improvements to infrastructure and security.
To commemorate this new stage of the Tianguis Turistico, held for over 30 years in the port of Acapulco, a special logotype has been designed representing most relevant aspects of Mexico as a favorite destination among tourists: tradition, adventure, beaches, businesses and luxury.
It is hoped that this year the grand beauty of our destinations will impress the name of our country upon the thousands of attendees expected for event. The Tianguis Turistico will be held from March 25th to 28th, 2012.
