Riviera Nayarit

Riviera Nayarit is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico. It extends over about 300 kilometers along the coast, surrounded by a mountainous jungle on one side and the coastal islands of the other. The Riviera Nayarit also offers secluded beaches and villages with incredible natural wealth. The beach of Chacala is a paradise of nearly one kilometer long and 40 meters wide for those looking to get away from the noise, pollution and crowds. Chacala is the queen of tranquility. Its fine golden sand, its waters with peaceful waves and abundant vegetation (palm trees, mahogany trees, fruit trees...) make it one of the most beautiful places in the coast of Nayarit. Visitors come to rest, swim, snorkel and enjoy the scenery.

WHAT TO DO:

Riviera Nayarit offers several kilometers of fantastic beaches where you can practice a variety of water sports: kayaking, water skiing, surfing, sailing, can all be done on site surrounded by a captivating natural setting: lagoons, forests, rocks, each beach demonstrates a unique style that you will gladly discover. Bahía de Banderas, south of the Riviera, is famous as it is the host every year to hundreds of humpback whales that offer visitors an outstanding show. Rincón de Guayabitos has beaches with crystal clear waters and peaceful waves which evoke a huge swimming pool. The municipio San Blas, north of the Riviera, offers a great biodiversity and archaeological ruins. You can explore the Tovara's mangrove, you could also make a tour around the Isabel island, do some birdwatching at Singayta, surf in the Bay of Matanchen, visit the ruins of the fortress of San Basilio, discover the island of Mexcaltitán and explore the archaeological site of Los Toriles. And while you are there; why not enjoy the city! Less than an hour away is the charming town of Puerto Vallarta, host of many festivals, shows, shops, lively plazas, restaurants and bars.

WHAT TO SEE

While taking a walk one evening on the beach, do not be surprised to see a huge whale or a group of dolphins out of the water! Then, you could go watch the sea lions or help out in the release of baby turtles? You can even join an environmental group of volunteers to help in the conservation of the Olive Ridley turtle and crocodiles. The crafts that you see in Riviera Nayarit are the work of the Huichol and Cora Indians who inhabit the Sierra Madre Occidental. Beautiful statuettes representing the gods of the sun and rain are common in the region. These ethnic groups are famous for their colorful costumes, embroidered fabrics, their feathered hats and their bracelets, rings and necklaces of glass beads; all expressions of their spiritual beliefs.
