This coming Sunday at midnight will be the day to advance your watch one hour, as Daylight Savings summer hours go into effect throughout most of Mexico, and will continue until the last Sunday in October. It is important to note that the Daylight Savings switch in the US does not go into effect until March 13, something important to take into account when scheduling flights in or out of Vallarta during the week between Mexico and US Daylight Savings.

According to FIDE, Mexico’s Energy Savings Trust (Fideicomiso para el Ahorro de Energía), Daylight Savings last year resulted in a savings of 670 megawatts, roughly equivalent to $1,470 million pesos. In addition, the measure prevented 466,000 tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere.

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
Leonardo Uribe
General manager

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others. And, because the way your magazines are located, we can really capture the clients we want."
