With the objective to offer an inclusive mobility through the streets of Marina Vallarta, in September of 2019 the construction of various handicap ramps started, that now allow a more comfortable and safe displacement through this area.

To learn more details about this project, the editorial staff of Vallarta Lifestyles visited the Asociación de Residentes Marina Vallarta, A.C., to talk with Antonio García, administrator of this organization and the architect Alonso González, chief of supervision and maintenance, who took the initiative to start with this project.

“This idea started from the observation, because one day I saw how different neighbours were having mobility issues on Albatros street and to make things a little bit easier, so we decided to build some ramps. In a very short time we noticed that more people were using them and they felt grateful with this construction and I thought about implementing them all over the neighbourhood. Along with Antonio, we developed a strategy for the council members, who immediately gave their approval and granted us more resources”, shares González.

This project, which is planned to be completed in May 2020, will consist of a total of 90 handicap ramps distributed throughout Marina Vallarta, of which, there is currently a construction progress of 40 percent.

“We are working to make Marina Vallarta a model neighbourhood for all Puerto Vallarta and with the same approach, they may apply the same level of maintenance, care and adequacy of spaces. Our main objective is that people with disabilities have good connectivity, as well as for those who start to use alternative transportation”, concludes García.

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”
