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.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles was the first reliable magazine that emerged in our destination. In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.
