Matanchén Pier: A San Blas Symbol

Jorge Chávez
Feb. 3, 2022

Located in Riviera Nayarit, specifically at the San Blas town, the Muelle de Matanchén (Matanchén Pier) has become one of the symbols of this Mexican Pacific region.

The Matanchén Pier is composed of more than 650 feet long and there are several semi-roofed benches that can be used to sit and enjoy the view toward the impressive beach that this Riviera Nayarit micro-destination has to offer.

This work was completed in 2016 and, despite the fact that only a few years have passed since then, it is currently an attraction in San Blas.

This beautiful pier does not receive any boats, it is used merely for recreational purposes, so both residents and visitors can have a good time.

In the afternoons, the pier takes on another facet that allows you to enjoy the sea breeze, while the horizon offers one of the spectacular sunsets that characterize this place full of history and legends.

At the end of the Matanchén Pier there is a statue dedicated to the “Loca de San Blas” (Madwoman of San Blas), a story that we will share in a later article.

“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.”

“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.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”
