Recently, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transport (SICT) opened the route La Florida Junction – La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Junction (30.8 kilometers), of the new Las Varas – Puerto Vallarta Highway, which will save 40 minutes on its route. An investment of 4.9 billion pesos was made in benefit of nine communities.

Two sections of this highway (54.4 kilometers) are now in operation. In addition, a third section is under construction. The total investment in the project (86.5 kilometers) will be 10.6 billion pesos and it will benefit 17 communities.

Once the work is completed, the highway will have 45 bridges, seven junctions, three tunnels and three viaducts, where more than 6,000 vehicles could be able to travel in a daily basis.

The highway will have multiple advantages for travelers, as it will allow access to different micro-destinations in the Riviera Nayarit corridor. The road will offer direct access to the Puerto Vallarta International Airport and will also strengthen connectivity with El Bajío area and Tepic, Nayarit.

A third section (32.2 kilometers) is currently under construction, which will reduce travel time by 25 minutes and it will connect the San Vicente Junction with Puerto Vallarta.

Of the 30 years that the magazine has been in circulation, we have been advertising for 23 years and without any doubt, it has been worthy for the big positioning that we have achieved. Besides, the quality of contents its unique in this area.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”
