Long time in the making, Puerto Vallarta's new Los Muertos Pier is beginning to look like the artist rendering we originally published last year in Vallarta Lifestyles' Spring/Summer 2011 issue (pg. 42). This photograph, taken two days ago shows most of the foundation in place, along with work being done on the central support tower, to be used to suspend long sails. While the completion date remains unclear, the new pier's construction rate would seem to indicate that the project will be finished before the Winter months, offering new and returning tourists an exciting new landmark to enjoy. 

When completed, the new Los Muertos Pier will provide easier access to a broader range of vessels, from small water taxis to day cruisers, along with a boom for restaurants, shops and other businesses in the vicinity.
