Surprisingly, there are many vacationers that pass up Riviera Nayarit for more popular destinations. After you visit for the first time, you will definitely see what they are missing out on.

However, with 200 miles to choose from, there are plenty of options when it comes to vacations. This can make it difficult to find the best places to vacation in Riviera Nayarit. Luckily, we have developed this guide for you to help you on your journey.

Playa Los Tortugas

One of the best things about this area of the Riviera Nayarit is the beautiful beaches that accompany it. It is named for the sea turtles that make their nest on the beach and encompasses 11 miles of the Riviera Nayarit. The turtles actually make their home in a turtle farm, where they are protected since they are endangered. They are then hatched and released back into the ocean with the hopes of repopulating the planet once more.

This specific beach is a great location for surfing because it has strong waves that are very long. Boogie boarding is also another popular past-time for those who visit this area. Along with this, you will also be able to enjoy beautiful scenery, including tall coconut palms and soft golden sand. The palms are actually part of a live coconut plantation and are farmed for the coconuts they produce.

Possible the absolute best thing about Playa Lost Tortugas is the fact that it is secluded. This helps to create a peaceful and relaxing vacation for all that visit. However, it is still located within a few miles of some pretty spectacular landscape, activities and adventures.

Bahia Jaltemba Bay

Not far from Playa Los Tortugas, you will find a collection of small vacation areas in Bahia Jaltemba Bay.
