Is Puerto Vallarta safe? YES! It is the third safest city in Mexico

The city of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, has been ranked as the third safest city in the country according to the National Safety Survey released by INEGI on Thursday.

After the result, the city council is celebrating that the tourist site has regained its position after falling to sixth place in the surveys previously released by the INEGI.

"Puerto Vallarta returned to the first three places of the safest cities in the country, as it presented less perception of insecurity among the population, according to the most recent National Survey of Urban Public Security, conducted by the INEGI last March and published this Thursday, April 16"

The municipal government of Puerto Vallarta boasts about it in a press release. San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon, and Merida, Yucatan, are in first and second place, respectively, according to the report issued by INEGI, which can be downloaded here.

"In the previous survey Puerto Vallarta registered that 34.2 of those surveyed said they felt unsafe, while the percentage now dropped to 31.8 percent; that is, 2.4 points less than the survey conducted in December 2019".
