    This is a recent rendering of the theme park. It closely aligns with the work being done.
    There are so many rumors and speculation. From a sales rep at Vidanta I was told that instead of opening in phases they would open the entire park all at once in 2021.
    No one seems to have any firm information.

    New satellite imagery from today that shows that the largest resort on the bottom continues to rise and a lot of dirt around the site is being moved around but that's about it right now...

    The satellite imagery is from TerraServer

    New satellite imagery from a few weeks ago shows that some progress has been made, particularly at one of the new hotels where multiple cranes can be seen, a new road is being built, and the small plots of land in the middle of the lake are now islands.

    "Mexico village struggles to navigate tourism tightrope"

    Some worry the development of the surrounding resort areas [Cirque du Soleil theme park] has altered the river’s flow and could increase the flood risk to the Pacific Coast village, about 10km north of the beach town of Puerto Vallarta.

    “This is like a ghetto - we’re here, we can’t see what’s happening on the other side,” said Vazquez, as trucks weighed down with construction materials trundled past his corner cafe.

    “We’re not against development, it’s welcome ... but it’s putting us at risk (of flooding from the river).”
    Grupo Vidanta, which owns luxury hotels such as the Grand Mayan between Jarretaderas and the Pacific coast, said it had teamed up with Cirque du Soleil on the theme-park development - which is expected to open in two years and will involve other companies.

    It said it was committed to a strong environmental and social policy, and that its developments complied with all environmental legislation.

    Cirque du Soleil, the Montreal-based circus and entertainment company, said it could not give details at this stage about the development in the Nuevo Vallarta resort area.

    I am told that all of the rides and attractions are (were) built offsite and will be transported to Vallarta for assembly. If this is so, that should allow for some relatively quick progress. But, with Vidanta, who knows.

  10. Actually, that’s an old photo. I live in Puerto Vallarta and the buildings are almost finished. There are big lakes in both sides of the avenue and a lot of vegetation, too. They are probably just waiting for the materials to start with the rest of the park. But it still seems like a lot of work to do.
