SEAPAL meeting CategoriesANA Development Events


Do you know where you were on August 10, 2021? For those of us who spend the summers in Puerto Vallarta, it is a day we will all remember. That afternoon the excavation occurring on Calle Santa Barbara in preparation for the new development called Serena – came violently crashing down. Thankfully there was no loss of life; however, the landslide significantly disrupted the lives of those who live and work on that street. Businesses were closed for several months, some neighbors have not had water for nearly five months, employees have had their incomes significantly reduced, and no one can use the street to access the other side.



Luis Alberto Michel Rodriguez THE MAYORPUERTO VALLARTA CITY COUNCIL PRESENT. The residents of the Amapas neighborhood, visitors, and residents, want to express our concern and annoyance caused by the deterioration and collapse of a section on Santa Bárbara street, located in front of where the Serena Villa was located, which has limited access to residents […]

Like many other neighborhood organizations, the Amapas Neighborhood Association (ANA), is doing what it can to help our fellow neighbors after the destruction brought onto our beloved city of Puerto Vallarta. Today ANA provided a roasted chicken lunch and a beverage to those workers who have been working diligently cleaning up the tons of mud and debris in the downtown area. ANA Administrator, Viviana Testón, loaded up her car with roasted chickens from Pollo Ranchero on Libramiento.

With the assistance of the La Guardia Nacional, Viviana was able to bring the food down to those who are working nonstop in this restricted area.

Funds were provided through the PAVE project where the focus is on providing food to locals while benefitting local businesses. Robin Spencer, Vocal, lead our Board in the initiation of the original PAVE program.
