The Riviera Nayarit, one of Mexico’s newest destinations, stretches along 192 miles of the pristine Pacific coast. Framed by the majestic Sierra Madre Mountain range, it is located just ten minutes north of the very accessible Puerto Vallarta International Airport. The region extends along the entire coast of the Pacific state of Nayarit, including the resorts of Nuevo Vallarta, the historic colonial town of San Blas, exclusive Punta Mita, picturesque fishing villages, miles of serene beaches and the spectacular Banderas Bay. The origins of Nayarit are found in the indigenous ethnic groups of the Cora and Huichol Indians who settled in the Sierra Madre; to this day preserving their rich culture and ancient beliefs through their unique beaded artwork. Nayarit has everything to offer...history, culture, traditions, stunning beaches, dense jungles and ecotourism.
