Lush nature, golden beaches, tropical fauna, emerald mountains, tradition, culture and an enviable climate. That is how to sum up what to expect in Riviera Nayarit, the 307 kilometers of Mexican coastline which have become one of the world’s new paradises for vacations. Cradled by the Pacific Ocean and the stunning Sierra Madre Occidental, the Riviera Nayarit is a
dazzling gem. From the very first moment, you will be amazed by its intense blue skies, its vegetation, the spectacular whale sightings and a world of beautiful crystal-water beaches.
With an average temperature of 25ºC and a unique brightness which adds a nuance to the landscape, making for an astonishing canvas, a trip to Riviera Nayarit presents an endless variety of sensations to be experienced. The point of entry to your destination will be Puerto Vallarta in the state of Jalisco, which welcomes you with its beaches and beautiful mountain landscapes. And from here you go directly to Nayarit.
Rainforests, mangrove swamps, mountain ranges and a never-ending blanket of sea and sand will be your travel companions across the Riviera. A walk along its coast leads to exceptional settlements such as Bahía de Banderas, one of the biggest and most beautiful bays in the world and the theater for the spectacular yearly arrival of humpback whales and their young calves. Some towns enchant you with their charm, such as Bucerías, a typical Mexican town with cobbled streets decked out in vibrant colors, or Cruz de Huanacaxtle, a traditional fishing village. Others are genuine wonders of nature, such as the Punta de Mita, the former sacred meeting place of thousand-year old ethnic groups and cultures, which is today one of the gems of the Pacific and one of the most prominent tourist destinations in Mexico. It amazes with an exotic setting splashed with beautiful coves, fairytale golden beaches and a spectacular natural beauty which makes it one of the most beautiful unspoiled regions on the planet.
An ideal destination through which to make contact with the spirit of Mexico and discover a country of traditions, culture and nature. A walk through its picturesque ports affords you the opportunity to taste an exquisite cuisine that specializes in fresh fish and shellfish. Against a rustic backdrop of islets you can practice recreational fishing or gaze at a wide variety of sea birds. And by swimming in its transparent waters, you will discover a spectacular underwater image established by coral reefs, the homes to amazing fauna.
The possibilities are endless and in all of the towns which form part of and perfect the Riviera, you can discover the best Mexico has to offer, taste a worldwide-renowned cuisine and make contact with a thousand-year-old culture which never ceases to amaze.
