Mascota, one of the Pueblos Mágicos of the state of Jalisco located approximately two hours Southeast of Puerto Vallarta, will celebrate the tenth edition of the Raicilla Cultural Festival this coming December 9 and 10, featuring more than 15 activities including raicilla tasting, exhibitions, workshops, cocktail bar contests, folk dance shows, among others (most of them will be held at the main plaza).

Raicilla is a distilled spirit made from the agave plant and originally from the Sierra Madre Mountains and the North coast of Jalisco. In Puerto Vallarta and other near villages such as El Tuito, San Sebastián del Oeste, Mascota and Talpa de Allende; Raicilla has become popular among locals and visitors. This festival is organized by the Mexican Council for Raicilla Promotion, local authorities and a dozen of raicilla brands such as Hacienda El Divisadero, El Ciervo, La perfección, La Gorupa, La Esmeralda and Los Tres Hombres.

“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."

“We started advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles because we really liked the quality. Actually, it is still the best magazine of Puerto Vallarta, because of its spectacular articles and photos. Thanks to its distribution points at famous hotels, it is the ideal publication to reach the clients we are looking for.”

General manager

“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.”
