Visitors Get Sand, Surf, Adventure and Culture in Nayarit

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stay in Nayarit on vacation?

As this article puts it, "new activities, culinary offerings and attractions are on tap for visitors headed for the Riviera Nayarit this summer", the resort area on the Pacific coast, close to Puerto Vallarta.

Eco-tours are offered in the forests and jungles of the Sierra Madre Mountains, 30 minutes northeast of the town of Nuevo Vallarta. Visitors scale a device called the Crazy Ladder, zoom on zip lines between suspended walkways and platforms high above the jungle floor and descend via rappels.

Beach lovers will find 192 miles of coastline and small towns from Nuevo Vallarta to Punta Mita, Sayulita and San Blas (will be posting a video in my next blog).

Riviera Nayarit offers a number of galleries, open-air markets and exhibits of traditional Huichol art. The Huichol, the native tribe of Nayarit and one of the few remaining tribes in Mexico that have retained much of their original culture, inhabits central western Mexico, mainly in the states of Jalisco and Nayarit.

If you're in Nayarit, or have been to Nayarit, what are a few activities or sights, you'd recommend to visitors there now?

I hope you'll share your experiences here!
