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.

“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.”

“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.”
Eduardo González

“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.”
