Nayarit, a land of unparalleled beauty,
with seas, riers, lakes, mountains…
In Cora (local indigenous language) Nayarit means “Son of god which
is in heaven and in the sun” and that’s how you will feel after spending
some time here, you will feel in heaven. Today, the coast of Nayarit
has become the new destination of choice for celebrities and
international visitors. However, you can also discover beautiful
colonial cities, health resort, archaeological sites and a unique
richness in culture and traditions.
It is not a coincidence that Nayarit is becoming a reference
destination in the international tourist scene, and the host of major
sporting events.
The state is a paradise that offers unique experiences.
Gastronomy
Nayarit is blessed with a unique geographic location, its fertile soil
produces a great variety of vegetables and fruits, wich along with the
wide coast, result in a number of unique dishes of the region. Some of
the most famous are: “Pescado Sarandeado”, usually prepared with the
pargo (sea bream), the fish is smoked over a manglar wood and palm
frond fire and is previously marinated in a combination of lemon juice,
soy sauce and chile; Chicken Ixtlan del Rio, fried chicken with potatoes,

zucchini and chopped lettuce all smothered with a tomato sauce prepared with
plenty of oregano; the Tlaxtihuille, a dish with pre-Hispanic origins which consists
of atole - a thick grumade from ground corn - powdered shrimp and chile;
Charred fish, cooked over an open fire made of manglar wood; Shrimp paté, the
shrimp is finely chopped and mixed with spices until it forms a paste then bathed
with white wine or port; and of course the Salsa Huichol, made from a variety of
chiles, spices, vinegar and salt.
Riviera Nayarit....
The Destination
Just north of Puerto Vallarta Mexico and spanning over 190 miles along
the Pacific coast of Nayarit, Mexico's Riviera Nayarit extends from the
northern border with Sinaloa, in the municipality of Tecuala, to the mouth
of the Ameca River, on the boundary with Jalisco.
This exceptional destination holds magic pictoresque towns, the Sierra de
Vallejo Biosphere Reserve with coastal lagoons, mangroves and
wetlands, home of crocodiles, sea turtles, and endemic birds; the Isabel
Island and Marietas Islands, both National Parks; the archeological
vestiges in Altavista; and allure beaches where sensational days of sun
and water sports can be enjoyed.
The Riviera Nayarit has family tours, services and infrastructure for all
kina of events, and a growing number of all inclusive and other resorts,
from value-priced to luxury, excelent spas and world-class golf clubs.
The temperatura here is warm and humid, with an annual average of 77ºF,
and the rainy season goes from June to October.
Along the Riviera Nayarit you may found the Huichol creations, famous for
their brilliantly colorful artwork and crafts that are on display and cheerfully
purchased in the marketplaces.
Along the Riviera Nayarit’s golden coastline you can enjoy the verdant
rainforest that covered the Sierra Madre Mountains contrasting with the
deep blue of the Pacific Ocean.

Beaches of the Riviera Nayarit
Riviera Nayarit is a unique destination that
blends harmoniously with nature.
The Nayarit coast is a tropical wonder that offers incredible jungle
scenery with beautiful golden beaches.
Nuevo Vallarta and Flamingos are the setting for the most complete
and elegant hotel and recreation development. In contrast Bucerias, a
colorful and charming Mexican town, offers an extensive beach where
you can enjoy your dinner under a thatched palapa. La Cruz de
Huanacaxtle is also a coastal village and is home of the most modern
marina in the country. In Punta Mita, you'll experience the pinnacle of
comfort and luxury in the ambiance of a picturesque village.
The beaches of Litibú and Higuera Blanca, offer an exclusive vacation
complex and a rustic locality. Sayulita, has become a legendary surfing
scene and the shores of San Francisco are a beautiful inspirations for
artists. The quiet beach at Lo de Marcos is a real gem for families, as
well as the beaches of Rincón de Guayabitos where the ocean waters
are so calm here that it is known as "the largest swimming pool in the
world.
In the Matanchen Bay, you will find nice beaches like Miramar, Los
Cocos and Aticama in the way to the historic port of San Blas with wide
beaches offering a variety of water sports.

With three miles of fine golden sand surrounded by
mangrove vegetation, Nuevo Vallarta is a family
destination par excellence and the scene of two
world-class golf courses, a pair of sophisticated,
well-equiped marinas, more than 6 miles of navegable
canals, an enclosed, air-conditioned shopping mall,
hotels and resorts of the most deluxe category, many
restaurants, two dolphin centers, and a water park.
This is a destination with notable real estate
developments.
The nature lovers can admire an important variety of
flora and fauna of the region and rejoice with the
arrival year after year of hawksbill, Olive Ridley and
leatherback turtles on the shores of Nuevo Vallarta. In
order to protect these endangered species, a turtle
sanctuary has been established here.

turtles during October and November.

San Blas
San Blas is known as the port where the Spanish
priest Junípero Sierra, 'Father' of the California
Missions, departed to California on 1768.
Visiting San Blas is like stepping back in time, a walk through these
lovely streets will take you to a distant past. This town was founded
by Nuño Beltrán de Guzmán in 1530, although King Charles III of
Spain did not recognize it as a deep sea port until the second half
of the 17th century. During these years, the port was constructed as
a shipyard and in October of 1767 the first ships were put to sea. In
San Blas, the first maritime customs house on the Pacific was
established, and the town became the most important of the region
during the Colonial period.
San Blas has many historic buildings and attractive places to visit
as the main square, the parish and the neighboring temple ruins.

Near the pier is the Former Maritime Customs House built in the
19th century, currently used as the Culture House. In the San
Basilio Hill is the “Contaduria” constructed in 1770 home to an
historic museum. And just a few steps down the hill, are the ruins of
the Nuestra Señora del Rosario Temple, built in 1769. From here,
you can enjoy a spectacular view of the cliffs and the sea.
