Canadians head home as flights from Puerto Vallarta resume after Hurricane Patricia

Flights between Canada and the Mexican resort community of Puerto Vallarta have resumed today after a massive hurricane disrupted travel this weekend.

The threat of hurricane Patricia prompted WestJet to cancel its flights to Puerto Vallarta on Saturday, but the storm came ashore in a sparsely populated stretch of coast and there were no reports of damage in major populated areas.

Westjet says it will run six flights to the community today and says 700 passengers have been booked.

Air Canada says its regularly scheduled flight today is a go as well.

Canadians in the region were prepared for the worst but three Canadians living in Puerto Vallerta say there was just a little rain on Friday and the sunshine was back yesterday.
