The bidding process for the construction of a new cruise port in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is in full swing. The Ministry of the Navy (Semar) will receive bids on October 3, while on September 26 it will answer questions at a session.

However, the tender schedule published on the procurement site Compranet by the port administration Asipona Puerto Vallarta does not specify the date for the award of the contract.

Semar requested this year 40 million pesos (US$2 million) from the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) to begin construction of the terminal, according to its investment portfolio.

The project "consists of the construction of a maritime terminal for tourist vessels in the northern part of the secondary navigation channel, on the east side of the Los Peines Marina," the documents state.

The port will have four 140-meter docks to enable eight new areas for different tourist activities such as fishing and will require complementary works.
