At 18 by 24 inches, the poster version is sized for a standard frame, but considerably larger then the portable version (14 by 20). White margins at the edges for proper framing.

The Puerto Vallarta Centro/South Coast Walking Map is also updated for 2023:

SIDE A: Walking Map of the Old City, with Stairways and Paths.
Descended from the original Mapa Jeff map of Puerto Vallarta.

SIDE B: Amapas, Conchas Chinas, and the coast down to Los Arcos.
Public beach accesses and parking, condos and resorts.

The Guadalupe Church and Plaza de Armas

Playa Los Muertos and the pier

Behind the old city, a waterfall springs to life in summer. 

Backstreet charm inland from the beach in Emiliano Zapata

Fluvial, Versalles, La Vena and Barrio Santa Maria, Aramara and Palmar de Aramara, and the entire coastal area west of Highway 200 are illustrated in exacting detail. Pedestrian paths and bridges; parks and hidden passageways; and many visible landmarks such as churches and radio-communications towers are included in this three-dimensional panaramic depiction of the northwestern areas of the city.

Though intended for pedestrians, the map is also indispensable for drivers. Street directions, paid and public parking lots, the ins and outs of the airport, and entrances to attractions such as the Estuary del Salado tours are all noted. Marina Vallarta's pedestrian paradise is shown with details such as the letters of individual piers, the boat launch, and the names of all surrounding condos and hotels.

An inset map on side B (above) shows the main routes out of Vallarta to the north towards Nayarit and the mountain route out to San Sebastian del Oeste, Mascota, and Talpa. Shown are the new route to the International Convention Center; the road down to the wild beach with its fish sarandeados just north of the airport runway; and where drivers can pay their speeding tickets.

 The cruise-ship port, which is undergoing huge changes to incorporate a new terminal and aquarium. Directions are given on how to catch a cab or bus.

Versalles and the streets east of the highway into the centro. Note the new dedicated bike path the length of Calle Viena, to the left.

Sleepy and adorable, the Aramara planned neighborhood has streets named for Huichol Indians.

The Marina, a good place to wander. Boat dock numbers are noted.

The eastern-central areas of Puerto Vallarta are where one finds the colonias spelled out on the fronts of buses departing from the Centro: Bugambilias, Ramblases, Jardines, Moderna, and others. This map covers everything east of Francisco Villa, north of the Libramiento as it exits the main tunnel, and north as far as the Laguna del Coapinole reservoir.

Puerto Vallarta Walking Map

The flagship Mapa Jeff map until 2015, this edition was printed in Mexico on sturdy water-resistant paper - a portrait of the city that will last forever in a frame, and survive several seasons out on the trail if folded and carried. All pedestrian features are noted: Footbridges, paths, garden stairways, notable monuments, 18 sites of interest to the explorer on foot, and more.

ONLY ONE LEFT of these richly colored, signed prints from 2013. They show more of the central city and mountains than the Walking Maps, and are suitable for framing.
