Default Puerto Vallarta Hurricane Damage Photos


If you want to see some of the damage caused to downtown Puerto Vallarta, the Malacon, and the Sheraton Hotel, go to the following site:


Marta Gilbert is a reknown artist who lives in P.V. Apparently her son took the photos.

There are no photos of the place where the ships dock, nor of the rest of the Hotel Zone. Hopefully there will be some help available to the town fathers to help restore the Malacon and the art work that was there. Only some of it survived. Los Arcos was one that did not. Even before that there should be some help for the folks who lost homes and businesses. They were woefully unprepared.

Wow - I was there last January and I can't believe the damage!! And PV didn't even take a direct hit - was 60 miles south of where the eye of Kenna came onshore!!!

Thanks for the link. I have an original Marta Gilbert large drawing done in oil pastels here in my home and was surprised to see her name as the address for the photos. (Not too surprised, when I think of it!) Thanks again! She's a very nice lady and I have met her several times. I have tremendous respect for her artwork.
