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 its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”

“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”.
