The Bay of Banderas in the Mexican Pacific is a unique area due to the countless number of activities available. “This bay offers visitors the chance to enjoy two destinations in one; on one side you have Puerto Vallarta with its charm and tradition and on the another, the Riviera Nayarit which also has very interesting attractions”, said Manuel Oviedo, General Director of Casa Velas.
The adventures that so many tourists and locals enjoy, whether in the mountains or on the sea, vary depending on the season. One special activity, for example, is whale watching (December to March each year). It is an impressive spectacle, as the animals are observed very close the coasts jumping through the surface of the water. Excursions on foot or by boat, visits to the Marieta Island or tours of the Pueblo Magico of San Sebastián are just a few experiences that one will never forget.
Mr. Oviedo stated that day after day, the tourism industry labors as efficiently as possible to continue to increase the flow of tourism. This is done through strong commercial alliances and the sharing of information about the natural wonders of the region: flora and fauna, enchanting streets and places to visit and the extraordinary service and warmth that characterize the Mexican people.
He concluded that the future involves a great deal of work with the state government to help Mexican and international tourists recognize Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit as some of their favorite destinations in Mexico and worldwide.
