Mariel Hawley, the amazing Mexican mermaid, is close to fulfill one more challenge in her storied career: swimming across Banderas Bay.

Although this 42 km-crossing (from Punta de Mita, in Riviera Nayarit, to Cabo Corrientes, south of Puerto Vallarta) is scheduled to take place between October 22nd and 26th, 2020, Hawley is already at our destination to begin her training. It is expected that this attempt can be completed in 14 to 16 hours.

Mariel Hawley is the 15th person in the world to complete the Seven Seas challenge, which includes the English Channel (33 km), Catalina Channel (34 km), Strait of Gibraltar (18 km), Molokai Channel (46 km), North Channel (35 km), Tsugaru Strait (30 km) and Cook Strait (28 km). In addition, she is the first Mexican to achieve the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming.

Altruistic Strokes

This extraordinary crossing with a cause is called “Corazón de Mar” (Heart of Sea), which will benefit the Puerto Vallarta’s Corazón de Niña shelter through the donation of resources generated by the tickets sales to participate in the online lecture “Cada Brazada Venciendo Límites” (Overcoming Limits with Each Stroke), given by Hawley. Its cost will be $200 MXN per person.

“Today it’s my turn to do my bit and put in a lot of strokes to support others who are facing a much more intimate, personal, and complicated battle called ‘cancer’. My idea is to make a crossing that marks out a new route, that blazes a new path for other people to follow”, shared Hawley.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has helped us a lot to position our business, the fact that people see us in the magazine has contributed their coming back to Faith Colectiva. Actually, we have measured the reach of our advertising by offering a free gift and it is unbelievable to see them coming with the issue.”

“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.”
Wayne Franklin

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
