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.
Soak in the untouched beauty of the Mexican Pacific from the saddle. Our equestrian outfitters will guide you on a breathtakingly beautiful journey through the countryside, descending from jungle trails onto pristine beach, on specially trained horses that move with gentleness and grace.
