Bucerías Limited-Edition Poster

Bucerias ready for framing, $30 shipped in the US


Limited edition of 50 Bucerías posters, signed and numbered. They are sized 18 by 24 inches for a retail frame.

This edition is ased on the same art used in the portable foldable Bucerias/La Cruz map.

Both towns are updated as of a thorough ground-research expedition in March, 2023.

I have refined the art and changed out the street font to achieve greater legibility over the previous edition.

This print is for now only available by mail order to the US and Canada. Order at my online store.


Puerto Vallarta Signed Limited-Edition Poster

$30 shipped in the US.

At 18 by 24 inches, this is larger than the portable version but still a convenient size to buy a standard-size frame, put it on the wall, and get raves from your guests for explaining Puerto Vallarta to them in one beautiful image.

The Puerto Vallarta Walking Map is 15 years into its development now.

Map Jeff first started wandering the back streets in 2008 after getting the Yelapa map into form. True to his original vision, the map continues to connect the street grid to the many pedestrian paths, footbridges over rivers and arroyos, garden stairways, oceanfront and park walks, and other features that get short shrift on standard maps and apps. 

When seen as a whole, it is easier to understand, appreciate, and enjoy the city before even setting out. Also easier to explain to houseguests.

While PV is changing fast, this map is oriented toward the permanent features of the landscape. One day, it will be an antique - but all the better for that.

The Cross, a good hike from the Malecon.

Guadalupe Church, Puerto Vallarta's central landmark, with the Plaza and Malecon.

Back streets of the Southside, with Santa Cruz church.

Behind the Libramiento, a waterfall springs into life in summer. This map shows the trail and where to park.

Zona Romantica and Los Muertos Beach and Pier.


Nuevo Vallarta at 10

People are like: "How up to date is it?"

Answer: No map fixed long enough on paper to study is going to be up to date with Nuevo Vallarta these days. I haven't thoroughly gotten a Jeep dirty and checked out the whole place since at least 2019.

It does not have the Cirque du Soleil complex fully drawn. I does have Chedraui!

But I'm proud to have surveyed and accurately logged not only the coastal enclave, with its Marina and many resorts cotos, but the entire Mexican inland community of Valle Dorado as well, all in the summer of 2012. 

In that respect it is a mere snapshot of a time. I have taken pains to graft Vidanta faithfully upon the southern tip in the years since, as it has ardened into an elaborate mini-walled-city and virtually swallowed old Jarretaderas like the crow snatches the hummingbird. 

I'm not sure I really even have the heart to draw the south shore of the Rio Ameca in the age of Vidanta. But it might be good for someone to know how the landscapes were laid out so that people later in history will have some idea what ruins they are looking at.

One day I will stop trying to update these places altogether, and print lots and lots of commemorative "remember the old times" maps of, say, Yelapa in 2005, and Puerto Vallarta in 2013. Signed, on quality paper, for loving presence in living rooms, on condo hallway walls, maybe in museums.

And they'll remain the most accurate snapshots of the area anyway, for years.

Nuevo I surveilled in the summer of 2012. I enjoyed exploring it more than I expected. I had a chance to draw it as I researched it because I was living in PV then.

The map emerged more or less whole in a few weeks, and I was very satisfied with the colors and style - it set the tone for much of what was to come during the rest of the decade, especially as it influenced the Puerto Vallarta Centro's color scheme with its deep green ocean and bright texts.

Just below is the coastal strip between Nuevo proper, the swampy Flamingos territory, and Bucerias at the left:
I drove every street in Valle Dorado  and presume most if not all those not yet paved then are paved now. Or, they're post-paved in places. Remember, roadside cave-ins are the more hazardous option than mere potholes. Some lanes run along ditches.

Yelapa 2022 Limited Edition Print

 The 2020 print is circulating in Yelapa for the time being but I have prints updated with 2022 information available to mail-order customers.

Order online here. 

This edition features a new color palette, somewhat lighter than the previous one for better legibility of text. The number of eateries in the Pueblo alone is now up to 25 (!). This print is on the same durable high-quality paper I always use for Stateside mail-order prints. It will also make a nice poster.

New PV and Cabo Corrientes Prints

 Limited Edition on Thick Cardstock

Even in this non-starter of a season, I have put out new prints two of my most popular maps: Puerto Vallarta Centro & South Coast, and Cabo Corrientes Roadmap. Since these are small print runs, I decided to experiment with thicker cardstock-type paper. These will be very sturdy maps when folded, and when ordered flat, are tough enough to laminate as placemats.

Paradise Launches

New for 2021: A map for a fast-rebuilding community.

Streets are laid into the folds of hills and creekbeds, and land forms are drawn in relief with shadow, in Mapa Jeff's signature technique. The result is a a unique three-dimensional illustration of the landscape.

Other than ghost graphics for the churches temporarily lacking a facility, this map indicates as little as possible the tragedy of November 8, 2018. All street names from the time before are on this map, aside from a few whose new owners have already decided to take them private.

The first image shows the first edition print, covering Paradise proper, available in stores as of Jan. 27 (for now, Jeannie's Consignment is the sole vendor in Paradise; in Chico, Ellis Reprographics and Art Etc. on First Street downtown also have them).

They can also be ordered shipped or delivered locally at my online store.

The last shows the large version, which shows the region all the way to Mount Shasta. This can be custom-ordered mounted and framed.

Easy to read - easy to retail.
