ABOUT THE DESIGN OF STARBUCKS PRAGUE ICON MUG
Starbucks Puerto Vallarta II Icon Mug front design features The Beach of the Dead or Playa de los Muertos.
The Beach of the Dead or Playa de los Muertos may not sound like the most promising place for a day by the sand, but for an authentic and truly lively Puerto Vallarta beach experience, it can’t be beat.
The stretch of sand fronts a pier and moored excursion boats, and is lined with bars and cafes. Locals and families also love this beach, and the diversity of the crowd is part of its appeal. The swimming can be good at Los Muertos, and out of the water the ambiance, beach volleyball and people-watching will keep everyone entertained.
Puerto Vallarta is a Mexican balneario resort city situated on the Pacific Ocean’s Bahía de Banderas. The City of Puerto Vallarta is the government seat of the Municipality of Puerto Vallarta which comprises the city as well as population centers outside of the city extending from Boca de Tomatlán to the Nayarit border.
Puerto Vallarta is named after Ignacio Vallarta, a former governor of Jalisco
In Spanish, Puerto Vallarta is often shortened to “Vallarta”, while English speakers call the city P.V. for short. The city occasionally is spelled or pronounced as Porto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta’s proximity to the Bay of Banderas, the agricultural valley of the Ameca River, and the important mining centers in the Sierra have given the town a more interesting past than most Mexican tourist destinations. Puerto Vallarta was a thriving Mexican village long before it became an international tourist destination.
Tourism was a major economic activity because of the climate, scenery, tropical beaches, and rich cultural history
For a sense of the extent even of the city’s modern history, note that Puerto Vallarta and Seattle were founded in the same year 1851.
