During her stay the journalist toured interesting local attractions such as the Islas Marietas and the coastal villages of the Magical Town of Sayulita, San Pancho, and the Historic Port of San Blas, further north. There she enjoyed the traditional flavors of Nayarit thanks to Chef Betty Vázquez, the Culinary Ambassador of the Riviera Nayarit. The tour ended with a visit to the city of Tepic, capital of the state of Nayarit, as well as the Magical Town of Jala, and the beautiful and mysterious lagoon at Santa María del Oro.
“Those seeking a little-known Mexican destination will surely be surprised by the Riviera Nayarit,” she wrote in her native tongue. “The pleasant climate, its ideal location between the mountains and the beach, the incredible biodiversity in its flora and fauna, and especially the exuberant hospitality of the people make the state of Nayarit a must as a vacation destination for young and old.”
