Located at 257 Lazaro Cardenas street, La Margarita is across the street from disco CC Slaughters
and next door to club La Noche, so it's on the popular Lazaro Cardenas gay circuit
which also now includes Mr. Flamingo, Paco's Ranch, and Fiesta

November 1-2, the Mexicans celebrate the the Day of the Dead to remember those who have died
and on this day return for a visit. Altars are often constructed in on which photos, flowers,
sweets, marigold flowers, confetti paper and other offerings to the dead are placed.
There are many displays of traditional Catrinas such as seen above,
which have come to symbolize El Dia de los Muertos and the Mexican willingness to laugh at death itself.
Above photo taken at the main Vallarta municipal flea market to remind us.
A nice shot of Los Muertos beach looking south into Conchas Chinas
showing the tradtional thatched palapas at the beachfront restaurants that line the shore,
as well as the popular parachute rides.
A fine picture showing the Los Muertos Pier taken from the rooftop of the La Palapa condominiums.
The structure took about two years to build and tons of money,
and was designed by Mexican architect Jose de Jesus Torres Vega.
Personally, I prefer the simpler old pier or muelle, but this new one has become one of the
main tourist attractions in town. It also leads many people to take a good walk from
the downtown Malecon, for a pleasant stroll through the South Side Romantic Zone.
CNN highlighted the city's newest gem in 2014 as one of the nine most beautiful piers in the world.
It was festively inaugurated on January 4, 2013 with fireworks, music and big crowds
