About Nayarit

The Riviera Nayarit, with its miles of  Pacific coastline and the vast rainforests of the Sierra Madre, is fast becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico.

Bordered by Sinaloa to the northwest, and Jalisco to the south, Nayarit is abundant with lush vegetation producing tropical fruits such as mangos, bananas, coconuts and tamarind.

Nayarit has many beautiful beaches each offering something for every preference from luxury all inclusive resorts, to quiet, secluded retreats in many of the coastal towns,  or to rolling surf for the more adventuresome tastes.

Nayarit's jungle clad mountains are home to a variety of wildlife including jaguars, mountain lions, wild bear, deer, caymans, armadillos, wild cats and tropical birds.

Banderas Bay to the south, is a famous destination for thousands of humpback whales which migrate there each winter to reproduce and give birth. There are companies out of nearby Puerto Vallarta that will take you out on a whale watching expedition if that is your desire.

The charming coastal town of Chacala is considered one of the most peaceful of Nayarit's destinations, with its uncrowded beaches and natural attractions.

Nayarit has a rich cultural history which is still displayed in the colorful
craftsmanship of the Huichol Indians of the Sierra Madre mountains as well as in the crafts of  other artistic ethnic groups such as the Coras, noted for their art in ceramics.    

To sum up, the visitor to Nayarit has a diverse choice of activities including swimming, snorkeling, whale watching, enjoying the landscape and culture, exploring the jungle or simply relaxing.
