The fun never stops in the Riviera Nayarit: there are plenty of activities for the entire family in our different micro-destinations, whether it’s beach time you’re craving or other active open-air adventures. If you want to learn a little more about the coolest ones, keep reading and make notes for your next trip out.


Snorkeling at Isla del Coral, Guayabitos

We can’t help but recommend snorkeling at Isla del Coral in Guayabitos, a place that leaves everyone who visits absolutely breathless. But even though it’s becoming more popular, the island is still new for many who visit Nuevo Vallarta, Bucerías, or Sayulita. It’s totally worth taking the day off to explore the Isla del Coral—you won’t regret it!

Sunset in San Pancho

San Pancho’s main beach is very wide and clean, and both visitors and locals do their best to take care of it. That makes it the very best place to watch the sun go down: the bay offers the most incredible sunsets we’ve ever seen. Besides, you can hang out and wait for the stars to come out, an excellent choice for a romantic evening!

Get to know Arte Bucerías

Bucerías is a town brimming with local culture and artisans—its streets are decorated with murals and lined with art galleries. Here you can browse through the works of both local and foreign artists. The town hosts cultural festivals year round; the most iconic of these is The Bucerías Chalk Art Walk, when the actual streets come alive with color and chalk drawings that showcase the best of the area’s artists.


Surfing at Playa el Borrego, San Blas

Surfing is an excellent option if you’re into extreme activities. You can hang ten at Punta de Mita, Sayulita, and San Pancho; but if you’re looking for something different and totally uncrowded, you’ll want to head out to Playa El Borrego in San Blas. And while you’re there, don’t miss a visit to La Tovara.

So, there you have it: four great options for your next vacation. In our next blog posts, we’ll share some more about what to do in the Riviera Nayarit. And don’t forget to use the #RivieraNayarit hashtag on your social media—we love to see you having fun in paradise!
