The Riviera Nayarit has always been known as a host destination for important events and this year is no exception. Mexico’s Pacific Treasure welcomes the summer season with a variety of activities in the sports, arts, music and cultural arenas, which will continue to place it in the international spotlight.

With more than 80 events of all kinds happening on a yearly basis, the Riviera Nayarit is an enticing destination where there’s always something going on, which the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) takes advantage quite well by organizing press trips that coincide with the different activities.

Because of this, a group of domestic journalists is currently visiting the destination to cover two important activities: the Corona Sunsets festival on July 22nd and the NIIJIMA Mexican Surf Open, set to take place July 21-23. Both will be held in San Pancho, but the group will also have the opportunity to visit other traditional villages in the area.

There are three different media represented and a influencer:

HuffPost México: The site targets men and women who love to travel and like to stay up-to-date with information and news from around the world. Impressions: 4,457,910

The Happening: It’s considered Mexico’s most important luxury and lifestyle portal; offers exclusive experiences for all the senses. Impressions: 1,174,830

Beat 100.9: Its radio show is dedicated to broadcasting and commenting on the latest news regarding all genres of electronic music. Impressions: 24,796,359 per month.

He’s covered multiple musical events including the Love Parade in Berlin, Coachella in the United States, the Personal festival in Argentina, the Heineken Thirst in South Africa and the Glastonbury festival in England.
