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.

“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 to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others. And, because the way your magazines are located, we can really capture the clients we want."
