Perhaps its name can be difficult to pronounce, but it is very enjoyable to visit, as it still provides the experience of being in a typical fishing village, highlighted by a marina with world-class infrastructure and space to accommodate up to 600 boats at a time. This micro-destination offers a relaxing alternative, with a good number of restaurants and a vibrant music scene.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”

Galería Contempo

“We started advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles because we really liked the quality. Actually, it is still the best magazine of Puerto Vallarta, because of its spectacular articles and photos. Thanks to its distribution points at famous hotels, it is the ideal publication to reach the clients we are looking for.”

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”
