Here are the Top 7 for Riviera Nayarit – stretching north 100 miles from the Jalisco regional border near Puerto Vallarta to San Blas, the newest, most hip region to go in Mexico is Riviera Nayarit! This region is guarded by the Sierra Madres Mountain Range that overlook lush tropical jungles, and a variety of beaches lined with Palm trees from secluded rocky coves to sandy shores with some of the longest waves in the world. This area is known for a training ground for beginner surfers to pick up some surfing skills! If you prefer the bohemian, eco-friendly beach town beat, head towards Sayulita where ex pats surf and enjoy watering holes, or San Pancho, an artsy village with Old Mexican charm. If you want a luxurious getaway, the gated communities and hotels of Punta Mita live up to every peso you spend.
