“Trying to enclose the magnificence of a place like Puerto Vallarta in one concept is probably very complicated.

In this communication piece for the Board, the OOH Marketing team brings together the experiences of people who are very closely familiar with Puerto Vallarta, and who, because of their commitment and love for the destination, will show its best side.
