2016 Drag Derby to Fund ANA's Pulpito Plaza Project

May 12, 2016

The design and realization of Pulpito Plaza is sponsored by Amapas Junta Vecinal and its sister organization, the Amapas Neighborhood Association. (Computer Rendering: ARQ Fanny Oliveras Ricardo.)

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - In March, workers completed installation on the first of three new planters in Pulpito Plaza - the intersection of Pulpito and Olas Altas streets, at the foot of the Pinnacle funicular, on the south side of Puerto Vallarta.


The planter now sports two beautiful mature palms, illuminated by three industrial-strength up-lights, and attractive groundcover.

With the approval of City Hall and the support of neighbors, the Amapas Neighborhood Association (ANA) hopes to be completing the other two planters soon.

Sprucing up Pulpito Plaza creates an attractive 'gateway' to Los Muertos Beach and the Amapas business area - both day and night - and, if a popular success, could serve as a model for other improvements along our neighborhood's streets and sidewalks.

The planters, along with attractive new wall-mounted street lights and decorative trash containers, are the result of ANA's ongoing partnership with City Hall, and funded by proceeds from the Pulpito Drag Derby, a popular event that has kicked off Vallarta Pride for two years running. This year's Drag Derby will take place on Thursday, May 26 - so mark your calendars!

Generous donors have contributed over $60,000 pesos for the palms, plants and landscape lighting, and ANA be adding tile plaques to commemorate their gifts.

This project is just one example of what can be accomplish when ANA - with the support of its members and neighbors - partners with City Hall to get things done.


The Amapas Neighborhood Association is the official association of residents and business owners in the Colonia Amapas of Puerto Vallarta. A volunteer and not-for-profit association with about 350 members, the ANA was founded in 2002 to improve the quality of life in Amapas. We work to keep our neighborhood safe, beautiful, desirable and welcoming to tourists and residents from all countries and walks of life. We are also the official "Junta Vecinal" or neighborhood council for Amapas, the legal representative of the neighborhood to the city government. Learn more at AmapasPV.com.
