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.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”

“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.”

“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.”
