• Riviera Nayarit will play host to more than 400 passionate fans of sports fishing who will participate in the First International Fishing Tournament at La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.
“In the San Blas tournament we had 60 participating Vessels and it was a record number, the highest in the 52 years since it was created. We’ve promised to recreate the same ambiance of fellowship and fiesta in the in La Cruz Tournament and we have already archived 78 team’s confirmed participation. I think the experience speaks for itself because many of them have registered at the ‘Pre- Inscription’ stage. We now have good expectations to reach our goal of 100 participating teams”, says Francisco Navarrete Buhaya, coordinator of Fishing Tournaments for the Riviera Nayarit.
These 78 vessels represent 312 individual fishermen- 4 on each team- plus their family members and friends. These fans will travel from inside the United States, Acapulco, Monterrey, Manzanillo, Barra de Navidad and San Blas to participate; of course there will be competitors from Puerto Vallarta and La Cruz. During their stay in La Cruz, they will bring a positive Economic impact to all the state of Nayarit.
Riviera Nayarit, which is also known as Mexico’s Pacific Treasure, has some of the most attractive features to offer fishing fans: Tuna fish, mahi mahi, sail fish and Marlin, all can be found here year round and together with the comfortable climate, guarantee a memorable fishing experience to all ages and experience levels.
