New treatment plant for Guadalajara


New treatment plant to serve 3 million people in Guadalajara

The opening of a new treatment plant this week in the state of Jalisco means that nearly 80% of sewage from the metropolitan zone of Guadalajara will be treated.

Agua Prieta, officially opened yesterday by President Peña Nieto, is Mexico’s largest and was completed at a cost of more than 3 billion pesos.

The plant brings to 54%, an increase of four points, the amount of sewage waste which is now being treated in Mexico. The project is part of the National Infrastructure Program, whose goal is to raise that figure of 54% to 63% by the time Peña Nieto finishes his term in office.

A fun trip to Yalapa

A fun trip to Yalapa on Banderas Bay



Yelapa (Yeh - La -Pa) was probably first populated by a some Native Americans of the tribe that originated in the ancient circular town of Tenacatitlan, 100 miles north, as they migrated south to eventually form Mexico City and become the Aztec empire. The word means 'gathering place' or 'meeting place' and, although it lies on the same latitude as Hawaii, has been likened to Tahiti.
The road south of Puerto Vallarta does not go all the way around the bay but cuts inland at Boca de Tomatlan. To get to Yelapa you must take a boat from Boca de Tomatlan , Los Muertos beach or the beach just south of the Rosita Hotel. Yelapa can also be reached by mountain bike or hiking down from El Tuito, high in the mountains behind the village. There is a daily cruise boat that drops tourists off for about two hours. Here in Puerto Vallarta you will find alot of beauty and culture, and of course the magical village of Yelapa.

Jalisco Tourism

Jalisco is in west-central Mexico and its capital is Guadalajara. The Sierra Madre Occidental mountain range traverses the state, separating the Pacific coast from a high plateau region. The Sierra Madre region is largely volcanic, and earthquakes are frequent. The state's many lakes include Chapala, Mexico's largest.
