According to Miguel Angel García Beltrán, General Director of the Puerto Vallarta Port Authority, the aquarium's design plan could be ready later this year and construction could begin in the first half of 2016.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - A private investor plans to build the largest and most modern aquarium in Mexico at Puerto Vallarta's Maritime Terminal.

According to Miguel Angel García Beltrán, General Director of the Port Authority (API), the project's investor specializes in large, modern projects of this kind.

He said that even though the project's final design has not yet been submitted, the proposed 'marine museum' will include glass tunnels that allow visitors to see most all of the marine species within the aquarium.

García Beltrán went on to say that the final plan for the structure's design could be ready later this year and that construction could begin sometime in the first half of 2016.

The (unnamed) private investor plans to spend around 250 million pesos on this world-class tourist attraction, which will give travelers one more reason to vacation in Puerto Vallarta... the opportunity to visit the largest and most modern aquarium in Mexico.
