Step off the beaten path for an authentic taste of life on the Pacific coast in the charming village of Litibú. Here, curious travelers can swing the day away on a Greg Norman golf course, ride horses on the beach, & delight in seaside sunset dining.
The Untouched Beaches & Seaside Splendor of Litibú, Nayarit
One of the lesser-known towns in Riviera Nayarit welcomes travelers to a relaxed taste of daily life in coastal Mexico. Litibú is a quiet village of white sand beaches, friendly faces, and inspired seaside landscaping, just a little more than an hour north of Puerto Vallarta. The first thing you’ll note when you arrive is the town’s artful entrance, ordained with gates, fountains, and a towering sculpture, all implying a hope for big things to come in the future. For the time being, however, it’s a charming destination you’ll want to visit before the world catches on.
Tee Off at a “Secret” Greg Norman Golf Course
One reason Litibú remains “off the map” to this day is its close proximity to hotspots like Punta Mita and Sayulita. It’s the former’s pair of heralded Jack Nicklaus courses that keep Greg Norman’s underrated Litibú Golf Course a guarded secret among golfers in Riviera Nayarit. This 18-hole run is one of the most gorgeous (and downright fun) in all of Mexico, plain and simple. Highlights include ocean vista views from the third and fourth holes, dense, hilly jungle throughout, and an 18th hole that rolls out to sea.
Book a Horseback Ride, Zipline, or ATV Tour
Local guides at Vista Paraiso passionately escort guests on an array of immersive adventures ranging from sky-high ziplines over the jungle to river romping ATVs and horseback rides on the beach.
Enjoy a Meal or Few at Litibú Grill
Planning a romantic sunset dinner? You won’t find a better spot than Litibú Grill, secreted away at the southern edge of town. The open-air kitchen means you’ll smell fresh seafood and vegetables grilling from a mile away. Laze on a hammock by the water, sipping margaritas before dinner. Then feast on oft-craved classics like perfectly charred octopus, giant jumbo shrimp, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. To heat things up, don’t forget to ask for the peanut-based Alfonso Salsa. It’s out of this world.
