Been There – Puerto Vallarta

Starbucks Been There – Puerto Vallarta is a mug for a Pacific Ocean resort city in the Mexican state of Jalisco. Puerto Vallarta is named after Ignacio Vallarta, a former governor of Jalisco. The name of the city is often shortened to “Vallarta” in Spanish.
Here are some points of interest from the mug:
– The statue of a man waving his hand as he rides a giant seahorse is one of Puerto Vallarta’s most popular and recognizable landmarks. Upon close examination, one can see that this is actually a boy with a hat behind his back. This iconic statue is one of many built on the Malecon, the city’s boardwalk.
– The back of the mug shows “hidden beach” or Lovers’ Beach (Playa del Amor) located on Marietas Islands. This unique beach can easily be spotted from above as it looks like a crater in one of the islands (Round Island / Isla Redonda). The only allowed way to get there is through a small tunnel when the tide is low. This place is very popular among tourists, but you can still guess a good timing for a nice picture when no one is around.
