We know that you are looking for a vacation and you are probably looking for fun activities that you can do in the Riviera Nayarit during your stay in paradise,  Don’t worry—we have you covered! Keep reading for family outings or individual “to-dos” (a tourist favorite)…

Whale watching tour

No matter how old you are, this tour will absolutely fascinate you. You’ll tool around the gorgeous Banderas Bay seeking these amazing and majestic animals—and, if you’re lucky, you’ll hear them singing, watch them play with their young, or even watch the males in their mating dance. The tour has a limited capacity per boat, so be sure to make a reservation at the co-op in Punta de Mita or via local tour operators out of Sayulita, Lo de Marcos, San Pancho, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, or Nuevo Vallarta.

Hiking tour

This is our trendiest tour! Here you’ll connect with nature, enjoying the flora and fauna and views that will take your breath away. Whether you choose to hike in Higuera Blanca, Sayulita, San Pancho or Los Ayala, find a local who knows the best trails to follow and how to get to the most beautiful secret beaches. This tour can be personalized for any age group or physical condition.

Biking tour

This one’s another favorite! Sayulita and San Pancho are some of the micro-destinations where visitors are inquiring more and more about biking tours. You can rent a mountain bike and go exploring on your own or reserve a guided tour—we recommend one for your safety. This tour can also be adapted to your level of expertise (be sure and mention what that is when you make your reservation).

Yoga retreat

The Riviera Nayarit is known for its yoga retreats by the sea, mainly in Sayulita, San Pancho, and Chacala. There you’ll find hotels that have their décor, restaurant, and style all focused on the yoga lifestyle. You can reserve your stay with yoga classes included or immerse yourself in a complete yoga retreat (sometimes they even include surfing lessons).
