Puerto Vallarta Celebrates New Landmark

Puerto Vallarta Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña, along with municipal authorities, inaugurated a new city landmark during the World Tourism Day celebrations: a colorful installation with the letters that spell “Puerto Vallarta.” The installation is currently located at the city’s Malecon, and will be in constant exhibition at different locations throughout the city.

The new attraction was created by Mexican sculptor Carlos Terrés, who was also responsible for the current crown on top of the city’s Guadalupe Church. Each letter is decorated with artistic elements and details present on the works by legendary local artist Manuel Lepe, whose naïve style has represented Puerto Vallarta throughout the world. The project took two months to complete.

Los Arcos Amphitheater and Marina Vallarta are among the next locations for this sign that is quickly becoming a popular spot for tourists and locals looking to photograph themselves and their loved ones as a souvenir.

According to Dávalos Peña, this sign does not compete with the welcome letters developed by local artist Natasha Moraga at the northern entrance to the city, as both projects help promote Puerto Vallarta and provide visitors with a memorable vacation experience.

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“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.”
