Direct Flights from Puerto Vallarta to Islas Marías Announced

San Blas, Nayarit, Mexico – The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, announced that it will soon be possible to visit the Islas Marías tourist complex by taking a flight from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport.

While inaugurating the first ferry trip from the new San Blas maritime terminal last Saturday, the president said that more ferries will be purchased to take tourists from San Blas, Mazatlan and a new terminal in Boda de Chila, near Las Varas.

However, he said that the Tepic and Puerto Vallarta airports should also be used, either for tourists to travel from there to the ports, where they can take the ferries, or by direct flights to the airport on Isla María Madre.

The airport complex on the island will be expanded to receive more flights, but these will be small planes of only 40 passengers.

This is what the President of the Republic said:

“We are going to talk about a circuit of Mexico City, Tepic, Mazatlán, Vallarta for the transfer from the planes and arriving here also in 40-passenger planes. The Isla Madre airport is going to be expanded, but what is going to help the most is the boats, the ferries.”

Although he did not give more details about investment amounts, airlines or exact dates, he said that the commercial arrival of tourists under prior reservation will start in June. On the islands there will be hotels and restaurants, as well as expedition tours.
