Commander Jorge Benito Rodríguez Martínez, Head of the Secretary of Public Security of the State of Nayarit, reported that in 18 Municipalities of the State there have been signs of an improvement in security indices.

But in the cases of the Municipalities of Bahía de Banderas and Compostela, a greater complication has arisen for their care. This is because there is a lack of vehicles for patrol tasks. Even the Tourist Police, which primarily attends Shopping Centers, do not have adequate vehicles for their tasks.

In the past, the La Mandarina Tourist Complex provided a vehicle on Commodatum, thereby intensifying surveillance and patrol tasks. Throwing as a strategy to seek to replicate this proposal with other companies in the area.


Eng. Luis ), State Director of CONAGUA, stated that the Aqueduct that OROMAPAS has been operating in the Municipality of Bahía de Banderas supplies 90% to population centers and only 10% to the area hotel.

Mr. Jason Lavender raised the problem that already exists with vehicular mobility on Federal Highway 200, particularly in the section from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to the Ameca River bridge, due to lack of alternative roads within densely populated areas in the Municipality of Bahía Banderas.

He expressed his concern that once the sections pending to be opened on the Guadalajara – Puerto Vallarta Highway are in operation, the traffic problem will worsen even more. This will increase the existing problems for guests of hotels and various lodging establishments in the Riviera Nayarit, Punta Mita, Sayulita, Lo de Marcos, San Pancho, La Mandarina, among others, who require access to the Puerto Vallarta International Airport and the Riviera Nayarit.

Finally, Mr. Lavender explained that in meetings held both online and in person, with representatives of the State Delegation of the Secretariat of Communications (SCT) in Nayarit, it has been reported by officials of said Unit that only 3% are missing of the Rights of Way to be negotiated in the road section from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to Puerto Vallarta, which should happen as soon as possible in order to start the construction of the Bahía de Banderas Bypass with the branch to the Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport.
