Once again, Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón was alive with celebration as the ideal stage for the unveiling of the monumental Catrina.

This Catrina is the centerpiece of the Day of the Dead festivities. It was designed by Alondra Muca, a young artist from Puerto Vallarta, who led a team involved in the preparation of this colossal structure made of metal and a fiberglass skeleton.

Located next to El Faro, this work of art made history for the first time in 2022 when it entered the hallowed pages of the Guinness World Records with an astonishing height of 22 meters and 64 centimeters.

This year, it reappears in a new guise, adorned with a gorgeous dress in dark tones and a striking hat crowning its majestic skull.

Its articles and advertising are target to the audience we’re looking for. Vallarta Lifestyles has grown the same way Puerto Vallarta has.”

“Among other things, Vallarta Lifestyles stands out for its strong presence throughout our destination, from five stars hotels to brand new condominiums, where they finally find the type of clients that we look for. For all of us is very important to be in print media to strengthen our advertising strategy and this magazine is essential to achieve it.”

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”
