entertainment underneath the stars. Brandi
Carlile, Edie Carey, Jen Foster, and Natalia Zuckerman are some of the musicians
who have been featured. Funny ladies
Shann Carr and Jennie McNulty are just
a couple of the comics who’ve brought on
the laughs.
And if you still aren’t ready to call it
a night… Throw on your dancing shoes
because the after-parties are just getting
started! Night owls can dance the night
away right at the hotel. But get your rest,
Sweeties, because tomorrow is another
full day.
If you are looking to spread your wings
and break from the pack, head out and
explore the local villages along the Riviera Nayarit, all within an hour of Puerto
For the brave, rent a car and wind your
way up the mountainous jungle highway
to the surf town of Sayulita. It’s about a
30-minute drive from the hotel, but a
world away from resort life. Buzzing with
locals, expat hippies, families and surf
enthusiasts, Sayulita is off the beaten
path and a great place to spend an afternoon.
Stop by Naty’s Cocina and indulge in
one (or three) of its famous $1 marlin
tacos. Locals love it. Tourists love it. And
your wallet loves it, too. Then kick back
under a beach umbrella and watch the
surfers ride the waves, or hop on one yourself. Why not?
If shopping is more your thing, the
bustling village of Bucerías is about a
20-minute drive from the hotel and offers
the best of both worlds. The north side of
town is the traditional arts district, or Old
Town. It’s filled with local artists and shops
selling unique indigenous creations. Get
lost in the market rows, searching for your
treasures. Then stay for an evening on the
south side, or New Town, known for its
happening nightlife, bars and live music.
