We know you’ll find all the fun you’ve been craving! Keep reading for more info on a few of the tours you just can’t miss this year in the Riviera Nayarit.
Tour to Islas Marietas (Marietas Islands) / Playa del Amor (Love Beach)
Although it’s one of the most popular tours, we know there are still some people out there who haven’t experienced the wonder of visiting the Islas Marietas (Marietas Islands) or swimming to the Playa del Amor (Love Beach). We just want to remind you that booking a tour to Islas Marietas isn’t the same as booking a tour to Playa del Amor. And why shouldn’t you miss out on this tour? Because Playa del Amor is one of the Riviera Nayarit’s most famous icons, its picture has been seen around the world, and it’s a total trip to enter this beach that looks like a crater. You have to go! Besides, you can also snorkel off the beach in its crystal clear waters—it will blow you away!
This tour is totally unconventional, but highly sought-after by lovers of our culture, traditions, and rubbing elbows with the locals. The tours offered by Human Connections focus on interacting with the local culture in Bucerías: you can mingle with a family of artisans, listen to their stories, and even enjoy their delicious local dishes. They also offer a tour to the agricultural heart of Banderas Bay. What’s interesting about these tours is that the families who participate receive payment for their work—it’s a way to empower their culture, disseminate it, and share.
Hiking Cerro del Mono (Monkey Mountain)
This tour has become popular with the locals, tourists, and influencers. You need to be in somewhat good shape to go on it, because the hike on the Cerro del Mono can be a bit hard on anyone who doesn’t do sports or any kind of exercise. The best part: the amazing view as you go up. We know you won’t regret it—we’re ready to do it again!
