Riviera Nayarita

The Riviera Nayarit (Spanish pronunciation: ) is a nearly 200-mile stretch of coastline between the historic port of San Blas in the Mexican state of Nayarit to where the Río Ameca empties into Banderas Bay, in Nuevo Vallarta.

It includes such notable sites as Chacala Bay, Chacalilla, the archaeological zone of the Alta Vista, Aticama, Bucerías, Sayulita famous for surfing, San Francisco, Lo de Marcos, Los Ayala, Rincón de Guayabitos and Peñita de Jaltemba. Riviera Nayarit was named to promote the beautiful coastline of Nayarit state, famous for several spectacular beaches, as well as several great surfing locations, such as San Blas and Sayulita. San Blas is also one of the best birding locations in Mexico, as well as a historical naval port dating to 1531. Nuevo Vallarta tourism has expanded, but retains its spectacular expanse of beach. Just north of Nuevo Vallarta is La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, with often empty beaches.[1][2][3]
