Bicycle Tours: The Best Way to Discover the Riviera Nayarit
- Cycling for fun, relaxation, or as a means of transportation is yet another attraction of Mexico’s Pacific Treasure.
Ever since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, travelers who want to revisit destinations all over the world have a greater appreciation for “green cities.” They are looking for outdoor spaces and activities, something that the Riviera Nayarit offers its visitors right at its gateway: Nuevo Vallarta.
The Fraccionamiento Nautico Turístico is a sustainable micro-destination with an EarthCheck certification. It spares no effort offering choices to its visitors: jogging, rollerblading, and biking are very popular among tourists and locals alike, who encounter diverse vegetation and beautiful birds along the way.
The bike path, outdoor recreation
Currently, visitors can tour Nuevo Vallarta by way of its avenues, walkways, and navigable canals. One of the highlights is the Ciclovía, or Bikeway, which crosses the subdivision from south to north and has become yet another recreational attraction.
The recreational area extends for 3 km and runs along Paseo de los Cocoteros Avenue, a few meters from the beach. It then connects with the walkway of the Maestro Flamingos Condominium and extends another 3.5 km to Federal Highway 200.
The route runs through the entire hotel zone. It is an excellent option to explore the most important points within Nuevo Vallarta, including the large resorts, the FIBBA beach club, the Business Center, the Paradise Village shopping mall, the restaurant zone, the Nuevo Vallarta Marina, and the Paradise Village Marina, among others.
A lovely, safe road
Tourists, locals, and the cycling community are looking for safety, something that the Ciclovía provides thanks to the right road and traffic signs. Some hotels offer loaner bicycles to their guests to encourage sustainable mobility, sports, and outdoor activities.
It is also well known that Americans and Canadians love jogging, so they will not have to worry about where to go when they visit this tourist destination. Even the locals have turned the Ciclovía into an ideal spot to run, train, and prepare for sports competitions.
There is no doubt that bike tours in the Riviera Nayarit are an excellent experience that you simply must enjoy if you visit this idyllic tourist destination. Don’t stay bored in your hotel room. Go out, explore, and tour Nuevo Vallarta by bike—some companies can rent you a bike by the hour or by the day so you can go on this adventure. Just ask at your hotel’s Concierge desk.
