On Mexico’s western coast lies a gem of a beach destination, Riviera Nayarit, a relatively new tourist hotspot that promises visitors an unparalleled vacation experience. In this corner of paradise, for as far as one can see, sweeping vistas of shimmering ocean expanses mesmerize onlookers in an ombré of blue that blankets the horizon.
Known for its natural beauty, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico is home to stunning landscapes of pristine coastline and palm covered mountains that create the backdrop for a myriad of seaside towns that stretch all the way from San Blas, a historic port in Nayarit, to where the Rio Ameca empties into Banderas Bay.
The beaches, some of the most beautiful in all of Mexico, lie where gentle waves crash upon shores of coastal towns that bring life to the region. One of these, Nuevo Vallarta became the center of tourism for Riviera Nayarit due to its close proximity to the favorite tourist destination of Puerto Vallarta. Boasting stunning golden sand beaches, luxurious resorts, a variety of posh golf courses and a network of canals that lead to the region’s most exclusive marina, this upscale neighborhood has become a home away from home for those looking for their own piece of heaven.
Further North, hugging the palm peppered coast, is a series of quaint villages that create great day trips for those staying in both Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta. Inspiring visitors with their romantic ambiance, friendly vibes and intrinsic beauty, each town offers a unique setting that captivates all those who visit the area. Among the most popular are Sayulita, Punta Mita and San Francisco (San Pancho), three towns that epitomize the charming Mexican appeal, delicious eateries, hip boutique shops and, of course, endless waves that characterize the region.
Vacationing in Riviera Nayarit is more than just a once-in-a-lifetime getaway, it’s a chance to fall in love with life, one sunny day at a time. Stay for a week on vacation and you are sure to want to stay for the rest of your life.
