The Riviera Nayarit has the most beautiful sunsets in Mexico

Today we want to share something that our travelers are constantly talking about on social media: the Rivera Nayarit’s gorgeous sunsets, the time of day in our paradise that’s a big hit with locals and tourists. No matter where you are when the sun goes down, the view is simply breathtaking. 


Here’s a list of some of the most beautiful sunsets as seen from the beaches in the Riviera Nayarit’s micro-destinations.



This must be the destination with the most Riviera Nayarit sunset photos. Plus, you’ll always catch someone waiting for it as they bob along on their surfboard. 

San Blas

This micro-destination is steeped in history, has inspired songs, and boasts endless beaches just for you: sunset here is a must as an after-dinner treat at one of the restaurants at Playa Las Islitas. 

Nuevo Vallarta

After a fun day at the pool, our visitors always take the time to watch the impressive color show put on by the sun and record it for posterity, whether they’re on the sand, their balcony, or enjoying a romantic dinner.

San Pancho

Some go by themselves, others with family, friends, or their dog. Watching the night steal across the sky is a moment to savor no matter who you’re with. Also: San Pancho is a great place to make friends on the beach.


Yoga and nature are the shining stars in this beautiful micro-destination, but the sunsets are no slouches. Just imagine bidding adieu to the sun from a hidden paradise in the middle of the jungle…

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle

Whether you’re on the beach or on a sailboat in the middle of the ocean, words cannot explain how incredible it is to watch the sunset from this village. By the way, this is highly recommended if you’re here with your sweetheart (wink).

Which one was your favorite? Next time you visit, don’t forget to take a pic of the sunset and add the hashtag #RivieraNayarit on your social media—we love to see you having fun!
