Los Muertos Pier moving ahead

Puerto Vallata’s new Los Muertos pier will be finished before the end of the year, according to  Victor Mijangos, planning supervisor at the Jalisco Department of Tourism.  A major attraction of the pier will be fabric sails that will be illuminated at night. The pier structure is reportedly being manufactured in Guadalajara and will be transported in segments to Puerto Vallarta.  The image above shows an artist’s rendition of what the finished pier will look like.

An eyewitness in Manzanillo

An eyewitness account of the storm in Manzanillo revealed impressive community preparation: “Never have there been seen so many electricity trucks on the boulevard waiting, which they were at 7 a.m. on Tuesday. Windows of restaurants and stores were taped and sandbags piled up in front of Office Depot in readiness,” said Freda Rumford, a British resident of the resort and editor of Manzanillo Sun E magazine.
