Update on Los Muertos and Boca de Tomatlán Pier Renovations

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – In a bid to invigorate tourism, the Jalisco Government, working in collaboration with the Department of Tourism and the Department of Infrastructure and Public Works (SIOP), is pushing forward with the Maritime Connectivity Model along the Jalisco coast. This ambitious project comes with a price tag of 85 million pesos (mdp) spanning from 2022 to the present year.

Tourism Secretary Vanessa Pérez Lamas, joined by Infrastructure and Public Works Secretary David Zamora Bueno and Susana Rodríguez Mejía, Director of UNIRSE Puerto Vallarta, recently took a tour of the Boca de Tomatlán and Playa de los Muertos piers to oversee the ongoing renovations that are essential components of this initiative.

With an investment of 31 mdp, the Boca de Tomatlán Pier has reached an impressive 82% completion in its structural overhaul. The old, dilapidated pier has been completely reconstructed, and it is anticipated that it will be completed by late September, with the final touches provided by prefabricated components in October.

At the Playa de los Muertos Pier, the construction progress stands at 58%, supported by a 10 mdp investment. This phase involves reinforcing the concrete portion with carbon fiber and sandblasting the steel structure to ensure it remains in optimal condition. The pier is anticipated to be ready before the year’s end.

Looking ahead, construction at Las Ánimas Pier is set to commence on September 4th, with a budget allocation of 44 million pesos and an estimated completion time of six months.

Secretary Pérez Lamas emphasized, “The continuation of these projects across various piers aligns seamlessly with the objectives of the Maritime Connectivity program. Not only do these upgrades seek to enhance the local residents’ quality of life, but they also aim to improve accessibility and provide a more enjoyable experience for tourists.”

She expressed her gratitude for SIOP’s unwavering support in elevating the competitiveness of Jalisco’s tourist destinations through these comprehensive interventions.

“Both the Boca de Tomatlán and Playa de los Muertos piers serve as launching points for hundreds of thousands of people heading to various coastal destinations in Jalisco, such as Yelapa, Punta Mita, Mismaloya, Islas Marietas, and even Cabo Corrientes. Therefore, bringing them up to standard is a decision that will benefit entire communities, beyond just the tourism aspect,” explained David Zamora Bueno, Secretary of Infrastructure and Public Works.
