Shopping At: De Los Rios

One of the perks of exploring Puerto Vallarta’s lively Emiliano Zapata neighborhood by foot is the diverse variety of tiny shops you’ll discover as you saunter from street to street. As we were doing so, we came across De Los Ríos Home and Lifestyle, a small home furnishing store that opened just a few months ago.

It’s owner is David de los Ríos, a young architect from Aguascalientes who moved to Puerto Vallarta a year and a half ago. Initially, he worked as a project manager for an important architectural firm but chose to open his own shop. “As I looked around Puerto Vallarta, I noticed that there are excellent shops selling traditional Mexican furnishings. However, not that many shops offer accessories that reflect a more contemporary, modern Mexico. So, I chose to specialize in Mexican accessories, focusing on items that would fit in a modern environment.”

David’s shop is located on Venustiano Carranza street, one block away from Basilio Badillo, known for its many shops, restaurants and galleries. “We are no match for Basilio Badillo,” he comments, “but we are happy to see an increase in commercial activity in our street, with new stores, restaurants and apartment buildings.” He is presently working closely with other business owners in his block to gain momentum and add to the neighborhood’s overall appeal.

De Los Ríos Home and Lifestyle is located at Venustiano Carranza St., between Constitución and Insurgentes. To acquaint you with his products, we’ve put together a short video. Enjoy!

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is very helpful for someone who arrives for the first time to the destination, because through its content one can discover really nice places to visit. Besides, it is a guide for us as residents, because we know from a good source the new things we can do. People take the magazine and in one place they find hotels, restaurants, galleries, real estate and other featured services.”
