It's Going to be a Busy May in Riviera Nayarit

May in the Riviera Nayarit means plenty to do for visitors and locals alike. Sailing competitions and kitesurf take over the waves and bikes thread their way through the mountain trails, while back in town there are plenty of cultural and religious festivities plus a culinary festival for our restaurant owners. And, as always, the Riviera Nayarit Groups and Events department has been working hand in hand with the organizers to ensure the success of all the events.

Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (May 3)

May 3rd, the Feast of the Cross, brings to a close an entire week of Patron Saint Festivities in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. During this time, the community and its environs come together to celebrate cultural, sports, artistic and religious events.

The 2016 Laser World Championship (May 10-18 / May 20-28)

The last two of four phases of an international event that brings together the best sailors in the world will take place in May: first the Laser Standard Men’s World Championship followed by the Laser Masters World Championship – Standard, both in Nuevo Vallarta. For more information, visit Laser Worlds.

Restaurant Week (May 15- 31)

This culinary celebration is a community event where over 40 restaurants from the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta come together to create a specially approved prix fixe menu during the entire two weeks in order to extend the region’s high season and promote its many amazing gastronomical delights.

Riviera Nayarit Wind Festival (May 20-22)

Bucerías, the Wind Capital of the Riviera Nayarit, is the ideal stage for kite surfing and other aquatic sports fueled by the ocean breeze; small wonder that approximately 200 national and international competitors are expected to flock to the Wind Festival. For more information, visit Festival de Viento.

Riviera Nayarit Mountain Bike (May 28)

The mountains of Higuera Blanca is the meeting place for over 300 riders who will gather for a tour along one of the most scenic and fun routes of the domestic Lijacim race; with its 26 categories, it has something to offer every kind of mountain bike enthusiast.
