Riviera Nayarit, Mexico: Diverse Terrain and Rustic Pueblos in Up-and-Coming Resort Area
Named one of the World’s Sexiest Affordable Destinations by Travel + Leisure, the Riviera Nayarit begins about 20 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta and stretches more than 100 miles along Mexico’s Pacific coast. It’s varied landscape of white-sand beaches and lush mountains presents a range of outdoor activities, including horseback riding along the shore and ziplining through the rainforest canopy. Visit one of the fishing towns strung along the coast for a chance to catch some of the area’s choice black marlin and sailfish.
Among Riviera Nayarit’s seaside hamlets, the charming village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle stands out for its diverse dining scene. Peruse the local tiendas for fresh groceries or drop into one of the restaurants for a night of live jazz, Spanish flamenco, or Latin fusion. On Sundays, the town’s farmers’ market is a must-visit for its organic produce and locally made wares.
Though many prefer the more laid-back pace of Riviera Nayarit, it’s location on the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta puts that city’s first-rate nightlife, restaurants, and cultural attractions within easy reach. Head here to pick up the pace on the Malecon, Puerto Vallarta’s sculpture-studded, seaside boardwalk, which buzzes with the activity of street musicians and food carts hawking skewered shrimp and spicy corn.
