Puerto Vallarta’s Naval Historic Museum underwent renovations in the past few months, re-opening with brand new interactive exhibitions in English and Spanish that allow visitors to discover Mexico’s rich maritime past and present. Overseen by the Mexican Secretariat of the Navy (SEMAR) and staffed by marines currently involved in military service at any of the Navy’s local facilities, the two-story museum is located in Puerto Vallarta’s El Centro neighborhood, next to the Los Arcos Amphitheater.

The Mexican Secretariat of the Navy is a member of the federal executive cabinet with responsibility for managing the country’s navy and marine forces. The secretary is appointed by the president of Mexico.

Exploring the museum should take less than an hour, during which you will be introduced to Mexico’s maritime history, which can be traced back to pre-hispanic times. The museum features a number of audiovisual exhibitions and a unique, five-screen navigation simulator that allows anyone to pilot a large ship through different conditions and environments.

A small gift shop on the street level features an air-conditioned coffee shop where visitors can relax and enjoy wireless Internet service if needed. The coffee shop also features outdoor seating and a navy jazz band performs live music in the evenings. Access to the coffee and gift shop is free, while admission to the museum is $45 pesos per person, $30 for students and seniors with valid ID. The Puerto Vallarta Naval Museum is located at Zaragoza 4 in El Centro, and is open Tuesdays to Sundays.

“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.”

“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 has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”
