Rain Under the Rain: An Encounter on the Malecón of Puerto Vallarta

On the Malecón of Puerto Vallarta, at the level of Galeana Street, stands the sculpture Lluvia (Rain). Created by Jovian, a talented Mexican sculptor, this work captures the essence of the rainy season in this paradise destination. With his arms outstretched and his face raised to the sky, Rain invites visitors to contemplate the beauty and power of nature.

With an imposing height of three and a half meters and a weight of 650 kilograms, this sculpture is not only an artistic feat, but also a symbol of the connection between man and the elements. Donated by Galería Corsica to the Vallarta Institute of Culture in November 2020, Rain has become an iconic piece of the Malecón, joining the 34 works that adorn this coastal walk from 31 de Octubre Street to Playa Pilitas.

The value of Rain lies in the unique experience it offers to those who view it, especially during the rainy season. Imagine walking under a cloudy sky, with raindrops falling gently, and encountering this sculpture that seems to embrace the rain itself. It is a moment to celebrate art and nature in perfect harmony.

Jovian, who has lived in Puerto Vallarta for 21 years, has taken his work to prestigious museums and galleries around the world, from Mexico to France, through the United States, Hong Kong and Singapore.

“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.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
Rodolfo Choperena
Galería Contempo

“We started advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles because we really liked the quality. Actually, it is still the best magazine of Puerto Vallarta, because of its spectacular articles and photos. Thanks to its distribution points at famous hotels, it is the ideal publication to reach the clients we are looking for.”
