Our friends over at Vallarta Lifestyles published an article about the hand-painted signs seen throughout Puerto Vallarta, you can click the link below to check their entire gallery!

Hand-painted signs in Puerto Vallarta can be appreciated on several streets and facades of businesses and homes located throughout our destination. This ancient art is rising again, positioning itself as a design and decor trend.

Recently, Biblioteca Los Mangos hosted the Taller de Rotulación Tradicional (Traditional Hand-Painted Sings Workshop), imparted by rotulacion.tradicional, which addressed the basic techniques of this craft. For decades, this kind of art has been intrinsically linked to the traditional architecture of Mexico and gives us a unique visual experience, which we share below.

The project is an initiative of Princess Cruises and it's expected to start operating in 2019.

Cruise tourism will see a major push in Mexico starting in 2019 when cruises will begin departing from Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco and sailing through the Pacific Ocean. The project is being nursed by Princess Cruises, headed in Latin America by Ruth Leal, in an initiative with very positive reception by the Tourism Secretary, Enrique de la Madrid Cordero, and the Communications Secretary, Gerardo Ruiz Esparza.

Princess Cruises will take advantage of Puerto Vallarta's effort in modernizing the city. In the past few years the city has focused in attracting investors to renovate existing properties into high end boutique hotels and small resorts, as well as developing new hotels focused in specific types of tourists, such as business travelers.

The project will also benefit from the new highway between Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta, which cuts travel time between the two locations down to two and a half hours.
