To date about $3.5 million USD has been invested in the first stage of the preservation and rehabilitation of Puerto Vallarta's historic downtown area, which was initiated in 2007. The second stage of the project will begin in May 2008.
Puerto Vallarta being the second most important tourism destination in Mexico, the governments of Mexico, the state of Jalisco, and the city of Puerto Vallarta have expressed great interest in the preservation and rehabilitation of the city's image.

In order to achieve this goal, all three levels of government have joined forces and are working together in the rehabilitation of Puerto Vallarta's Historic Center. The objective is to create a harmonious blend of the town's buildings' facades with the street signage, and street furniture, eliminating visual pollution, and contributing to the touristic and economic development of the city and improving the quality of life of the local population.

The project is divided into five stages and will encompass the following: building facades, urban mobility, reforestation, and infrastructure including roads, drainage, electric and gas lines, and the concealment of all cables.

The last stage will focus on regulations and use of land as well as the integration of public lighting with the installation of new public street lights in the main square and all along the Malecσn. About $3.5 million USD has been invested in the first stage of this project that was initiated in 2007. The second stage of the project will begin in May 2008.

Material from the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board is included in this report.
As one of Mexico's most attractive destinations, Puerto Vallarta's steady growth has been accompanied by improved services, an extensive expansion of its infrastructure and an increasing number of cultural activities to better serve both the growing number of travelers who visit Puerto Vallarta every year, and the city's ever-growing population.
