For a winter vacation that is sure to be cherished, head down to Riviera Nayarit and take advantage of irresistible values offered at hotels for families and couples alike. Complementing the destination’s natural beauty is a selection of luxury resorts, all-inclusive hotels and boutique properties that cater to a variety of tastes. For this winter season, hotel offerings include everything from VIP treatments at luxury accommodations, incredibly discounted rates to ‘kids stay free.’
The combination of sun, sand and Mexican culture yields to an array of distinctive holiday festivities for visitors to discover. In addition, one of the standout destination highlights occurs during the winter season. Beginning in December, hundreds of humpback whales head to the protected waters of Banderas Bay during their migration from Alaska to Hawaii. Here, they swim amongst wild dolphins that inhabit the waters year-round. An incredible destination experience, visitors can view the whales up close and personal through Vallarta Adventures’ Whale Watching Tour. For more information, visit: www.vallarta-adventures.com
