So, don’t lose faith: that trip you had planned will happen when everything gets back to normal — and our destination will be here waiting for you.
Meanwhile, take a virtual vacation and discover Mexico’s Pacific Treasure.

300 km of coastline… The Riviera Nayarit is Mexico’s trendiest beach destination with extensions of golden sand lined with palm trees and virgin beaches that double as turtle nesting grounds. The most famous is Playa del Amor (Love Beach), part of the Islas Marietas, although Novillero in Tecuala is also well-known — it’s considered Mexico’s longest beach and the second-longest in Latin America at more than 90 kilometers in length. You’ll love it!
