Situated on the west coast of Mexico, Banderas Bay offers 34 miles of incomparable coastline in the states of Jalisco and Nayarit. Banderas Bay is Mexico's largest natural bay and home to Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit's many great destinations.
Riviera Nayarit's long, curving coastline is decorated by small beachside jewels - all of which offer an exceptional opportunity to experience the hidden havens that lie just north of the Bay.
This laid-back seaside community offers plenty of local color, many family run restaurants, plenty of shopping, a five-mile stretch of white sandy beaches, and a nice town plaza to enjoy.
