The Fraccionamiento Náutico Turístico Nuevo Vallarta community and the neighboring Condominio Maestro Flamingos have become “The Mainstream” of the Riviera Nayarit, simply because they offer everything. In Part 1 of a two-part series, we’d like to give you a peek at some of the highlights of the area.
