Riviera Nayarit

Undiscovered Mexico

Nestled between the lush jungle and the sparkling ocean in Western Mexico, Riviera Nayarit invites you to uncover its hidden treasures and embark on an extraordinary journey. This enchanting destination stretches along nearly 200 miles of pristine beaches, encompassing nature reserves, untamed rainforests, and picturesque villages with authentic charm. Riviera Nayarit is a sanctuary for the curious traveler seeking a rich tapestry of culture and endless adventures.

 

Situated north of Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit is home to several of Mexico’s prized “Pueblos Mágicos” (magical towns), each with unique allure. Wander the winding cobblestone streets, immerse yourself in the vibrant local restaurants, and explore the artisan shops that showcase the region’s craftsmanship. Experience the deep-rooted traditions of healing and spirituality that permeate these communities, creating an atmosphere of profound cultural significance.

 

One of the most captivating features of Riviera Nayarit is its collection of uninhabited islands, with the Marietas Islands standing out as a must-visit destination. Located just a 50-minute journey from Conrad Punta de Mita, these islands offer a breathtaking escape. Explore the hidden beaches and marvel at the extraordinary natural formations, including the famous Playa Escondida (Hidden Beach), a secluded paradise accessible through a unique tunnel-like opening. Snorkel in the crystal-clear waters, discovering a vibrant underwater world teeming with marine life.

Our Experiences

Our Agave Studio is devoted to the ancient spirit and its many enticing forms. Our agave expert will guide you through a tasting selected from our 200-plus bottles of tequila, mezcal, raicilla, and sotol. Discover their history, provenance, and flavor profiles, accompanied by small bites. Or book a five-course dinner with agave pairings.
The temazcal ceremony is a sacred tradition for the Huichol people of Western Mexico — and a transformative wellness experience for you. A local healer guides you through this soulful journey, which takes place in a dome-shaped earthen chamber heated with stones. You’ll emerge stimulated, detoxified, and restored.
A private beach party that immerses you in the spectacular beauty of our two-mile beach and in time-honored cooking rituals native to the Mexican Pacific. Our culinary team prepares the ocean’s bounty for your lunch — flipping it over and over (zarandeado means “to turn”) — until it’s cooked to perfection. Salsas frescas and regional dishes round out the beachside barbecue.
From December to March, Western Mexico hosts one of the world’s magnificent wildlife spectacles: the annual whale migration. Hundreds of humpback, blue, sperm, and other whales leap, spout, and dive as they follow our shore. Watch these majestic creatures from close range on a private boat tour — and don’t forget your camera.
In Western Mexico, we consider the Pacific our playground. However you imagine playing in (or under) the water — snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, kayaking, and more — our team can bring it to life. Activities are available for all skill levels, from novice to expert.
The best way to experience the spectacular, unspoiled beauty of the Mexican Pacific coastline? From the water — or even better, from our luxurious private yacht. The captain will guide you to hidden beaches and secret snorkeling coves while the crew serves up fresh botanas and cocktails.
