With an investment of $300 million pesos, the remodeling of the new maritime terminal of Puerto Vallarta called ‘Puerto Mágico’ has begun.
The new terminal will host Hacienda Tequilera, a modern shopping center, walkways, sculptures, fountains and ample parking. The complex will cover three major projects.
La Hacienda Tequilera and El Nido are expected to open their doors for the summer of 2018. The new spaces will have about 100 shops of all kinds, except a restriction on convenience stores.
The President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, called for an improvement and modernization of the country’s port terminals. In 2015, the call for tenders for three projects was launched: passenger and tourist services, an aquarium and a commercial shopping center with parking, in the maritime terminal of Puerto Vallarta.
The company Vallarta Shorex won two of three bids, the API / VAL Installation for Passengers and Tourist Services / 01/15. From there is born ‘Puerto Mágico PV, SRL de CV’, the name that encompasses both La Hacienda that will be the installation for passengers and tourist services; El Nido, the commercial area, service and parking facility. The other project is the Aquarium.
The infrastructure will consist of 25,000 m², and will generate a considerable number of direct and indirect jobs.
