Last Saturday, tropical storm ‘Enrique’ became a hurricane in front of the Mexico’s west coast. So far, it is one of the most important meteorological phenomena registered in 2021.

This Monday, the Comisión Nacional del Agua (CONAGUA) (National Water Commission) reported that hurricane ‘Enrique’ continues in Category 1 of the Saffir-Simpson Scale (which includes five categories of intensity, the fifth being the strongest and most dangerous.)

Alejandra Méndez, coordinator of the Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN) (National Meteorological Service), reported that ‘Enrique’ could be totally degraded in the next 72 hours, but in its trajectory, it could cause torrential rains in Colima, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán, Nayarit and Sinaloa.

“Rains could be accompanied by electric shocks and strong winds, in addition to increasing the levels of rivers and streams. Very high waves are forecast on the coasts of Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, Nayarit and Jalisco”, said Méndez.

Currently, ‘Enrique’ is located 105 kilometers west of Cabo Corrientes, Jalisco and 430 kilometers southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur. It is moving north-northwest at 4 mph and registers sustained winds of 87 mph with gusts of 102 mph.

Although ‘Enrique’ is disappearing, the SMN warned that moderate rains, winds and waves could occur on the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit coasts, so people must be still alert and follow the authorities’ indications.

“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.”

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

“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.”
