Riviera Nayarit is one of Mexico’s most popular coastal routes, due to its series of green-ish beaches and dense rainforest full of mountains, valleys and hidden coastlines that border every curve of its shores. 

One of the most recognized places in the area is Puerto Vallarta.

An entire city that emerges from the mountains of the coast of Bahía de Banderas.

The Marietas Islands are made up of two deserted islands off the coast of Nayarit:

Larga Island and Redonda Island, where you can snorkel and dive in their surroundings.

The “Beach of Love” or “Hidden Beach” is best known worldwide for its cave or cenote shape that has its inner beach in which tourists can access to admire the rareness and exotic shape of this fragment of the archipelago.

Walk along the Pier

You didn’t go to Puerto Vallarta if you didn’t visit the famous pier.

Located in front of the sea, this sidewalk is located in Vallarta’s heart where you can walk from side to side of this iconic zone.

Full of colors, monuments, crafts and restaurants, the Pier is the perfect place to take a relaxing walk where you can soak up the culture of the place.

While you buy souvenirs, food, drinks, and pieces of art that are displayed in different galleries along the street.

Get to know everything the famous sculpture of the “Sea Horse” created by Jalisco’s artist Rafael Zamarripa.

Also, the fountain of friendship and the good fortune unicorn sculptures.
