The Museum of Opal and Minerals of Mexico is a project founded by the Avilez Vitro brothers Pedro, César and Laureano, members of a miners’ family from Taxco, Guerrero.

 

The Museum of Opal and Minerals of Mexico offers guided tours through four stations that are representations of different Mexican mines. The tour begins in the opal mines setting, unique to the town of Magdalena, Jalisco and continues with a selection of quartzes alluding to the town Naica, Chihuahua. Next to them are the silver mines from Taxco, Guerrero and the tour concludes with an exhibition of gold and copper stones distinctive from Zacatecas.

 

Each space is carefully designed and set to create a unique sensorial experience, where residents and visitors of all ages will be able to learn in an interactive way the different extraction processes of the most representative gems and minerals from Mexico.

 

The Museum of Opal and Minerals of Mexico is located at Venustiano Carranza 218, Emiliano Zapata from Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00am to 7:00pm.

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”

“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.”

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising our business in Vallarta Lifestyles is the presence of our brand aimed to the audience we are looking for. It is a reliable and professional magazine that has helped us with the marketing of our restaurant several times, through well done photography or articles. We feel that we understand each other.”
