On the occasion of the celebration of Day of the Dead, the Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón is home to a monumental catrina, whose height is 23 meters.

The designer of this catrina was Alondra Muca, a Vallarta young artist who led a work team that was involved for more than a year in the preparations of this enormous structure, which is made of metal and a fiberglass skeleton.

According to Muca, this catrina has details alluding to both the city and the Mexican Pacific.

Located next to El Faro, this monumental work brings a new enhancement to our city, making it a new attraction.

Photographer Víctor Lara shares this series of photographs where you can appreciate some aspects of this impressive work that shows fine touches of art and great creativity.

"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 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.”

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”
