Recognizing the significant benefits that the natural landscape of the bay provides its residents, Jalisco State Governor Aristoteles Sandoval declared that going forward the Puerto Vallarta Mountains will be protected and all efforts will be made to ensure further development is sustainable and sensitive to the areas resources.
During the recent anniversary celebration of Puerto Vallarta’s 95 years as a Municipality and 45 years as a City, the Governor Sandoval stated his commitment to declare the Puerto Vallarta Mountains as a protected zone.
“I see the better quality of life that people of this area enjoy due to their relationship with the  mountains and the ocean.”

  1. If one looks at the downtown maps in the various free English visitor newspapers available in Puerto Vallarta, one sees the extent of the city streets and buildings, and from a line east of the freeway Libramiento, is shown green as representing the Puerto Vallarta Mountains as a protected zone. It is part of the Tropical Rain Forest Zone in Mexico, that runs down to South America, and historically was used by the Olmec and Maya cultures.

    Much has changed in PV and in these protected zones in the 30 plus years my family and I have vacationed at the Canto del Sol Timeshare Resort. From the top of the new tower at the Plaza Pelicanos Timeshare Resort, one can see the much of the construction of houses going up the western side of the PV Mountains. This is what Jalisco State Gov. Aristoteles Sandoval is wanting to protect against. With the removal of the vegetation, road building construction, will come greater erosion from the almost nightly rains.

    It would be sad to lose the charm of the small fishing village and old downtown area, that so many us vacationers come to see every year. There are so many big cities in Mexico to see, but so few small cities like Puerto Vallarta.
